Add-DnsServerForwarder

Last Updated: 3/28/2017

SYNOPSIS

Adds server level forwarders to a DNS server.

SYNTAX

Add-DnsServerForwarder [-IPAddress] <IPAddress[]> [-ComputerName <String>] [-PassThru]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Add-DnsServerForwarder cmdlet adds one or more forwarders to the forwarders list of a Domain Name System (DNS) server. If you prefer one of the forwarders, put that forwarder first in the series of forwarder IP addresses. After you first use this cmdlet to add forwarders to a DNS server, this cmdlet adds forwarders to the end of the forwarders list.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a forwarder to a DNS server by using an IPv6 address

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerForwarder -IPAddress 2001:4898:7020:f100:458f:e6a2:fcaf:698c -PassThru

This command adds the IPv6 address 2001:4898:7020:f100:458f:e6a2:fcaf:698c to the list of forwarders on a local DNS server.

Example 2: Add a forwarder to a DNS server by using an IP Address

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerForwarder -IPAddress 172.23.90.124 -PassThru

This command adds the IP address 172.23.90.124 to the list of forwarders on a local DNS server.

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.

Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None

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

-ComputerName

Specifies a remote DNS server. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Cn

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

-IPAddress

Specifies an array of IP addresses of DNS servers where queries are forwarded. If you prefer one of the forwarders, put that forwarder first in the series of forwarder IP addresses.

Type: IPAddress[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None

Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
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
