Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata

Returns the replication metadata for one or more Active Directory replication partners.

Syntax

Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata
   [-AuthType <ADAuthType>]
   [-Credential <PSCredential>]
   [-Filter <String>]
   [-IncludeDeletedObjects]
   [-Object] <ADObject>
   [[-Properties] <String[]>]
   [-Server] <String>
   [-ShowAllLinkedValues]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata cmdlet returns the replication metadata for one or more attributes on a given object. The metadata is contained in the following two directory objects:

single-value attribute: msDS-ReplAttributeMetaData

multi-value attribute: msDS-ReplValueMetaData

The cmdlet parses the byte array(s) and returns the data in a readable format.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata "CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" corp-DC01 -ShowAllLinkedValues

Description


Get the replication metadata for the attributes of a group with Distinguished Name "CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" from the CORP-DC01 domain controller. By including the -ShowAllLinkedValues switch parameter if a multi-valued attribute is present, all its linked values are also retrieved.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata "1A7BFEC6-C92C-4804-94B0-D407E51F1B64" corp-DC01 -IncludeDeletedObjects

Description


Get the replication metadata for the attributes of an object with GUID "1A7BFEC6-C92C-4804-94B0-D407E51F1B64", including the deleted objects and the deactivated forward and backward links.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-ADObject -Filter 'objectclass -eq "group"' | Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata -Server corp-DC01 | Where-Object {$_.lastoriginatingchangetime -like "*11/10/2011*"} | Format-Table object

Description


Get all groups that have any of their attributes modified on 11/10/2011.

Required Parameters

-Object

Specifies an Active Directory object by providing one of the following property values. The identifier in parentheses is the LDAP display name for the attribute.

Distinguished Name

Example: CN=saradavis,OU=users,OU=asia,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com

GUID (objectGUID)

Example: 599c3d2e-f72d-4d20-8a88-030d99495f20

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If two or more objects are found, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to an object instance.

Derived types, such as the following are also accepted:

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADGroup

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADUser

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADComputer

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADServiceAccount

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADDomain

This example shows how to set this parameter to an ADObject object instance named "ADObjectInstance".

-Identity $ADObjectInstance

Type:ADObject
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Server

Specifies the Active Directory Domain Services instance to connect to, by providing one of the following values for a corresponding domain name or directory server. The service may be any of the following: Active Directory Lightweight Domain Services, Active Directory Domain Services or Active Directory Snapshot instance.

Domain name values:

Fully qualified domain name

Examples: corp.contoso.com

NetBIOS name

Example: CORP

Directory server values:

Fully qualified directory server name

Example: corp-DC12.corp.contoso.com

NetBIOS name

Example: corp-DC12

Fully qualified directory server name and port

Example: corp-DC12.corp.contoso.com:3268

The default value for the Server parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:

-By using Server value from objects passed through the pipeline.

-By using the server information associated with the Active Directory PowerShell provider drive, when running under that drive.

-By using the domain of the computer running Windows PowerShell.

The following example shows how to specify a full qualified domain name as the parameter value.

-Server "corp.contoso.com"

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. Possible values for this parameter include:

Negotiate or 0

Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

The following example shows how to set this parameter to Basic.

-AuthType Basic

Type:ADAuthType
Parameter Sets:Negotiate, Basic
Position:Named
Default value:Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.AuthType.Negotiate
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

Type a user name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with Windows PowerShell.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Filter

Specifies a filter in the provider's format or language. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. The syntax of the filter, including the use of wildcards, depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than other parameters, because the provider applies them when retrieving the objects, rather than having Windows PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IncludeDeletedObjects

Specifies to retrieve deleted objects and the deactivated forward and backward links. When this parameter is specified, the cmdlet uses the following LDAP controls:

Show Deleted Objects (1.2.840.113556.1.4.417)

Show Deactivated Links (1.2.840.113556.1.4.2065)

Note: If this parameter is not specified, the cmdlet will not return or operate on deleted objects.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Properties

Specifies a list of one or more attribute names as a comma separated list to return the metadata for replication partners. This parameter also accepts * to indicate that all attributes set on the object should be returned.

Type:String[]
Aliases:Property, Attribute, Attributes
Position:2
Default value:* (all properties)
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ShowAllLinkedValues

Specifying this switch returns all linked values if the attribute returned is multi-valued.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False; by default, only the linked value with the highest USN is returned
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADObject

A class structure that represents the Active Directory objects.

Outputs

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADReplicationAttributeMetadata

A class structure that represents Active Directory replication attribute metadata objects.

Notes

  • The default behavior for this cmdlet is to prompt for object identity. Other tools that have been provided to manage this feature in previous releases of Windows Server include the Repadmin.exe command-line tool.
