This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113216).

Inputs

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

  • Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsReplicationGroup

Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.DistributedFileSystemReplication.DfsReplicationGroup

Examples

Example 1: Create a replication group

This command creates a replication group named RG01.


PS C:\> New-DfsReplicationGroup -GroupName "RG01"

Example 2: Create a replication topology

This example creates a replication topology with an upstream server and two downstream servers.

The first command uses the New-DfsReplicationGroup cmdlet to create a replication group with the name Branch Office 1. The command pipes the output to the New-DfsReplicatedFolder cmdlet to create a replicated folder with the name Data Distribution 1. The command pipes the output to the Add-DfsrMember cmdlet to add the member servers named SRV01, SRV02, and SRV03. The command formats the output of the pipeline as a table.

The second command uses the Add-DfsrConnection cmdlet to add bidirectional connections between servers SRV01 and SRV02.

The third command uses the Add-DfsrConnection cmdlet to add bidirectional connections between servers SRV01 and SRV03.

The fourth command uses the Set-DfsrMembership cmdlet to set SRV01 as the primary member.

The fifth command uses the Set-DfsrMembership cmdlet to set membership for servers SRV02 and SRV03.
