Brian Lich|Last Updated: 4/3/2017

SYNOPSIS

Adds an entry point to a multi-site deployment.

SYNTAX

Add-DAEntryPoint [-ComputerName <String>] [-ServerGpoName <String>] [-Name] <String> [-GslbIP <IPAddress>]
 [-DeployNat] [-NoPrerequisite] [-PassThru] -RemoteAccessServer <String> [-InternalInterface <String>]
 [-InternetInterface <String>] [-ClientIPv6Prefix <String>] -ConnectToAddress <String> [-Force]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Add-DAEntrypoint cmdlet adds an entry point to a multi-site deployment. This cmdlet checks that the server complies with the prerequisites for DirectAccess deployment, and adds the server as an entry point.

EXAMPLES

Example 1

PS C:\>Add-DAEntryPoint -Name "Entry Point 2" -InternalInterface CorpNet1 -RemoteAccessServer "da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com" -InternetInterface Internet -ClientIPv6Prefix 3000:0:30:2000::/64 -ConnectToAddress "ep2.da.contoso.com" -PassThru -Force

EntryPointName                 GslbIp                         Servers 
--------------                 ------                         ------- 
Entry Point 2                  0.0.0.0                        {DA2.domain1.corp.contoso.com} 


To validate the name of the GPO which was created by this cmdlet, the following script should be used.
PS C:\>$daServer = Get-DAServer -EntrypointName "Entry Point 2"



PS C:\>$daServer.ServerConfiguration.GpoName

domain1.corp.contoso.com\DirectAccess Server Settings - Entry Point 2


In addition, running the Get-DAMultiSite cmdlet displays the newly added entry point.
PS C:\>Get-DAMultiSite

EnterpriseName             : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                   : 
ManualSiteSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints              : {Entry Point 1, Entry Point 2}

This example adds the edge server named da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com to the multi-site deployment, names the server Entry Point 2 and declares CorpNet1 as the network interface which is connected to the corporate internal network. Since the company uses IPv6 prefixes, IPHTTPS remote clients will connect via ep2.da.contoso.com using predefined prefix 3000:0:30:2000::/64.

Example 2

PS C:\>Add-DAEntryPoint -Name "Entry Point 2" -InternalInterface CorpNet1 -RemoteAccessServer "da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com" -InternetInterface Internet -ClientIPv6Prefix 3000:0:30:2000::/64 -ConnectToAddress "ep2.da.contoso.com" -ServerGpoName "domain1.corp.contoso.com\EP2ServerGpo"  -PassThru -Force

EntryPointName                 GslbIp                         Servers 
--------------                 ------                         ------- 
Entry Point 2                  0.0.0.0                        {DA2.domain1.corp.contoso.com}


To validate, the following script should be used.
PS C:\>$daServer = Get-DAServer -EntrypointName "Entry Point 2"



PS C:\>$daServer.ServerConfiguration.GpoName

domain1.corp.contoso.com\ EP2ServerGpo

This example adds the edge server named da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com to the multi-site deployment, names the server Entry Point 2 and declares CorpNet1 as the network interface which is connected to the corporate internal network using a pre-created GPO domain2.corp.contoso.com\EP2ServerGpo.

Example 3

PS C:\>Add-DAEntryPoint -Name "Entry Point 2" -InternalInterface CorpNet1 -RemoteAccessServer "da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com" -InternetInterface Internet -ClientIPv6Prefix 3000:0:30:2000::/64 -ConnectToAddress "ep2dmz.da.contoso.com" -ServerGpoName "domain1.corp.contoso.com\EP2ServerGpo" -PassThru -Force

EntryPointName                 GslbIp                         Servers 
--------------                 ------                         ------- 
Entry Point 2                  0.0.0.0                        {da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com}

This example adds the edge server named da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com to the multi-site deployment, names the server Entry Point 2 and declares CorpNet1 as the network interface which is connected to the corporate internal network behind the NAT named DeployNat , with a defined internet interface named DMZNet1 and directs clients to connect to the entry point through ep2dmz.da.contoso.com.

Example 4

PS C:\>Add-DAEntryPoint -Name "Entry Point 2" -InternalInterface CorpNet1 -RemoteAccessServer "da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com" -InternetInterface Internet -ClientIPv6Prefix 3000:0:30:2000::/64 -ConnectToAddress "ep2.da.contoso.com" -GslbIP "137.5.0.50" -PassThru -Force

EntryPointName                 GslbIp                         Servers 
--------------                 ------                         ------- 
Entry Point 2                  137.5.0.50                     {da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com}

This example adds the edge server named da2.domain1.corp.contoso.com to the multi-site deployment, names the server Entry Point 2 and declares CorpNet1 as the network interface which is connected to the corporate internal network using GSLB and the IP address for Entry Point 2 is 137.5.0.50.
