New-DfsnFolderTarget

Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Adds a target to a DFS namespace folder.

SYNTAX

New-DfsnFolderTarget [-Path] <String> [-TargetPath] <String> [[-State] <State>]
 [[-ReferralPriorityClass] <ReferralPriorityClass>] [[-ReferralPriorityRank] <UInt32>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The New-DfsnFolderTarget cmdlet adds a target to a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. Specify the DFS namespace folder and the folder target. You can set the state of the DFS namespace target and configure priority class and priority rank for referrals.

A DFS namespace folder has one or more folder targets that are shared folders on computers. When a client attempts to connect to a folder, the DFS namespace server provides a list of folder targets, called referrals. The server determines the order for referrals and clients attempt to connect to a folder target in the order that the server provides.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces on TechNet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a target

PS C:\> New-DfsnFolderTarget -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware" -TargetPath "\\Contoso-FS\Software" -ReferralPriorityClass GlobalLow

This command adds \\Contoso-FS\Software as a target for the DFS namespace folder \\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware with a referral priority of global low.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

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

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

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

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Path

Specifies a path of the DFS namespace folder. This cmdlet adds a target for the folder that has the path specified.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: DfsPath, FolderPath, NamespacePath

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ReferralPriorityClass

Specifies the priority class for a DFS namespace folder target. Target priority offers you the ability to classify and rank in-site targets. You can specify targets to receive the highest or lowest preference, and you can divide the remaining targets based on their site cost for a DFS client to connect to them. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • GlobalHigh. The highest priority class for a DFS target. Targets assigned this class receive global preference.
  • SiteCostHigh. The highest site cost priority class for a DFS target. Targets assigned this class receive the most preference among targets of the same site cost for a given DFS client.
  • SiteCostNormal. The middle or normal site cost priority class for a DFS target.
  • SiteCostLow. The lowest site cost priority class for a DFS target. Targets assigned this class receive the least preference among targets of the same site cost for a given DFS client.
  • GlobalLow. The lowest level of priority class for a DFS target. Targets assigned this class receive the least preference globally.
Type: ReferralPriorityClass
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: PriorityClass, Class
Accepted values: sitecostnormal, globalhigh, sitecosthigh, sitecostlow, globallow

Required: False
Position: 3
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ReferralPriorityRank

Specifies the priority rank, as an integer, for a target of the DFS namespace folder. Lower values have greater preference. A value of zero (0) is the greatest preference.

Type: UInt32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: PriorityRank, Rank

Required: False
Position: 4
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-State

Specifies the state of the DFS namespace root target. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Online
  • Offline

Clients do not receive referrals for a DFS namespace folder target that is offline.

Type: State
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Offline, Online

Required: False
Position: 2
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-TargetPath

Specifies a path for a target of the DFS namespace folder. This cmdlet adds this path specified as the folder target.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Target, DfsTarget, FolderTarget

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
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

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
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.
