New-NfsNetgroup

Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Creates a netgroup.

SYNTAX

New-NfsNetgroup [-NetGroupName] <String> [[-AddMember] <String[]>] [[-LdapServer] <String>]
 [[-LdapNamingContext] <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The New-NfsNetgroup cmdlet creates a netgroup. It can also add members to the new netgroup. The netgroup provides access to shares that Network File System (NFS) server exports.

You can create a netgroup in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), on an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) server, or on Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers. If you do not specify a netgroup store, New-NfsNetgroup creates a netgroup in the netgroup store that is configured on the local computer.

The cmdlet creates the netgroup as a relative distinguished name in an LDAP naming context (directory partition). For example, if the specified naming context is DN=netgroups,CN=Contoso,CN=com", the distinguished name of the netgroup Contoso-PrintServices is "DN= Contoso-PrintServices ,DN=netgroups,CN=Contoso,CN=com".

You can group NFS client computers logically into netgroups to easily manage mount permissions for all the computers that are in the group. Because netgroups are a server-side setting, New-NfsNetgroup is not available on client operating systems.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Create a netgroup and add a member

PS C:\> New-NfsNetgroup -NetGroupName "Contoso-PrintServices -AddMember "Contoso-PS02" -LdapInstanceName "Contoso.com" -LdapNamingContext "CN=MappedIdentity,DC=Contoso,DC=com"

This command creates a netgroup that is named Contoso-PrintServices and adds one member that is named Contoso-PS02.

Example 2: Create a netgroup and add multiple members

PS C:\> New-NfsNetgroup -NetGroupName "AppServers" -AddMember "Contoso-APPS-11","Contoso-APPS-12" -LdapServer "Contoso.com" -LdapNamingContext "CN=netgroup,DC=Contoso,DC=com"

This command creates a netgroup that is named AppServers and adds two members that are named Contoso-APPS-11 and Contoso-APPS-12.
