ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid

Translates GUIDs to friendly names within a given replication group.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid [-GroupName] <String[]> [-Guid] <Guid[]> [[-DomainName] <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid cmdlet translates Distributed File System (DFS) Replication GUIDs to friendly names within a given replication group. DFS Replication uses GUIDs to represent the friendly names of various objects and metadata. DFS Replication writes these GUIDs to Active Directory, XML files, the event log, and debug logs. This cmdlet converts GUIDs for connections (connid), replicated folders (csid), replication groups (rgid), volumes (volumeid), members (memberid), and databases (dbguid).

Parameters

-DomainName<String>

Specifies the NetBIOS name or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) domain that contains the replication group. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the domain of the current user.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsReplicationGroup, Guid

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsReplicationGroup, Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsReplicatedFolder, Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsrMember, Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsrMembership, Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsrConnection, Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsrVolume

Examples

Convert a GUID to a friendly name

This command uses the ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid cmdlet to convert a replicated folder GUID to its friendly details.


PS C:\> ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid -GroupName RG01 -Guid 9268F23A-7701-4184-8B8B-4BFDBB8AC411

Example 2: Determine which server originated a file modification

This example looks up a Global Version Sequence Number (GUID) for a file, and then looks up the name of the server that originated that change.

The first command uses the Get-DfsrIdRecord cmdlet to lookup a file’s Global Version Sequence Number (GUID).

The second command looks up the server that originated the change.


PS C:\> Get-DfsrIdRecord -Path C:\rf01\canary.bmp | Format-List global* GlobalVersionSequenceNumber : {B34A6F21-A20D-402D-9BE1-467309C21CDF}-v20
PS C:\> ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid -GroupName Rg01 -guid B34A6F21-A20D-402D-9BE1-467309C21CDF
