Get-DANetworkLocationServer

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 4/3/2017

SYNOPSIS

Displays the detailed Network Location Server (NLS) configuration.

SYNTAX

Get-DANetworkLocationServer [-CheckReachability] [-ComputerName <String>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
 [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-DANetworkLocationServer cmdlet displays the detailed Network Location Server (NLS) configuration.

Configuration consists of the following.

-- Where the NLS is present, such as on DirectAccess (DA) Server or some other external server.

-- URL, if the NLS is present on a different server.

-- Whether the NLS is reachable or if it is configured on a different server.

-- NLS Certificate, if the NLS is present on the DA server.

-- Reachability: If the NLS is present on an external server, then is it reachable. If the CheckReachability parameter is specified, then this configuration is populated.

The configuration returned is applicable, globally, to the entire deployment.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\> Get-DANetworkLocationServer -CheckReachability
NLSLocation : DirectAccessServer 
URL  : 
Reachability : True 
Certificate :[Subject] 
CN=edge1.corp.contoso.com 
 [Issuer] 
CN=corp-DC1-DA 
 [Serial Number] 
611C450F000000000003 
 [Not Before] 
10/3/2011 7:42:23 PM 
 [Not After] 
10/2/2012 7:42:23 PM 
 [Thumbprint] 
23SF6B23J076HJ6LW6LD7H4L62206K237SNH6G2F

This example gets the NS configuration for the DA deployment. In this case since the DA Server is hosting the NLS, the NLS Location is shown to be DA Server. The output also shows the SSL certificate which is being used by NLS.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CheckReachability

Performs a reachability check to the specified URL.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ComputerName

Specifies the IPv4 or IPv6 address, or host name, of the computer on which the DA server computer specific tasks should be run.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Cn

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

INPUTS

None

OUTPUTS

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DANetworkLocationServer

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.

The object consists of the following properties:

-- Where the NLS is configured: on the DA server or on a different server.

-- If NLS is configured on a different server: the URL used to detect whether a remote computer is inside or outside the corporate network.

-- The certificate used for NLS if it is configured on the DA server.

-- If the NLS is on a different server, then whether the URL is reachable or not.
