Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD

Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD

Initiates an update of the DFS Replication service.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD [[-ComputerName] <String[]> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD cmdlet initiates an update of the DFS Replication service. The cmdlet forces the DFS Replication service to immediately perform a full Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) poll of the Active Directory Domain Services (AD°DS) for configuration changes, and applies any changes to the service.

By default, the DFS Replication service queries domain controllers every five minutes by using a lightweight check for membership configuration changes in AD°DS. This periodic check speeds up the service response to certain types of configuration changes. If the DFS Replication service detects a new membership, a full poll follows. By default, the DFS Replication service performs a full poll every hour.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies an array of names of member computers. You can use a comma separated list and the wildcard character (*). The cmdlet forces the DFS Replication service on the computers to poll Active Directory immediately.

If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the local computer. To return a response, use the Verbose parameter.
