Examples

Example 1: Get root hints for a DNS server

This command gets root hints for the local DNS server.


PS C:\> Get-DnsServerRootHint

Example 2: Get root hints by using a resource record

In this example, the Get-DnsServerRootHint cmdlet gets a list of all root hints on the local DNS server. The command then passes that collection to the Where-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator.

Where-Object filters the resource record to get the root hint for the DNS server that has the name H.Root-Servers.net.


PS C:\> Get-DnsServerRootHint | Where-Object {$_.NameServer.RecordData.NameServer -eq "H.Root-Servers.net."}
