Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential

Last Updated: 3/27/2017

SYNOPSIS

Sets credentials that the DHCP Server service uses to register or deregister client records on a DNS server.

SYNTAX

Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential [-ComputerName <String>] [-Credential] <PSCredential> [-PassThru]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential cmdlet sets credentials that the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service uses to register or deregister client records on a Domain Name System (DNS) server.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Set a credential for a DHCP server

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential -Credential $Credential -ComputerName "DhcpServer03.Contoso.com"

This example saves a credential on a DHCP server. The DHCP server uses the credential to register or deregister client records on a DNS server.

The first command uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to create a PSCredential object, and then stores it in the $Credential variable. The cmdlet prompts you for user name and password. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

The second command specifies the credential object stored in the $Credential variable for the DHCP server named DhcpServer03.Contoso.com.

Example 2: Prompt the user for a credential for a DHCP server

PS C:\> Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential -ComputerName "DhcpServer03.Contoso.com"

This command sets the DNS credentials that the server that runs DHCP server uses for registering and deregistering client records with the DNS server. The cmdlet prompts you for user name and password.

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.

-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

-Credential

Specifies a PSCredential object based on a user name and password. To obtain a PSCredential object, use the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True

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
