Description

The Set-ADReplicationSubnet cmdlet sets the properties of an Active Directory replication subnet object. Subnet objects (class subnet) define network subnets in Active Directory. A network subnet is a segment of a TCP/IP network to which a set of logical IP addresses is assigned. Subnets group computers in a way that identifies their physical proximity on the network. Subnet objects in Active Directory are used to map computers to sites.

Examples

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

C:\PS>Set-ADReplicationSubnet "10.0.0.12/22" -Site Asia -Location "Tokyo,Japan"

Description


Set the properties of the subnet named '10.0.0.12/22'.

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

C:\PS>Get-ADReplicationSubnet -Filter {Location -like "*Japan"} -Properties Site | % {Set-ADReplicationSubnet $_ -Site Asia}

Description


Get all the subnets in the directory that are in Japan, and set 'Asia' as their associated site.

Required Parameters

-Identity

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=10.0.0.0/25,CN=Subnets,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,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.

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

-Identity $ADObjectInstance

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

Optional Parameters

-Add

Specifies values to add to an object property. Use this parameter to add one or more values to a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can specify multiple values to a property by specifying a comma-separated list of values and more than one property by separating them using a semicolon.. The format for this parameter is

-Add @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; AttributeNLDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...}

For example, if you want to remove the value "555-222-2222" and add the values "555-222-1111" and "555-222-3333" to Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone'), and add the value "555-222-9999" to Phone-Mobile-Other (LDAP display name 'otherMobile'), set the Add and Remove parameters as follows.

-Add @{otherTelephone='555-222-1111', '555-222-3333'; otherMobile='555-222-9999' } -Remove @{otherTelephone='555-222-2222'}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-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
-Clear

Specifies an array of object properties that will be cleared in the directory. Use this parameter to clear one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Clear Attribute1LDAPDisplayName, Attribute2LDAPDisplayName

For example, if you want to clear the value for the Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone') set the Clear parameter as follows.

-Clear otherTelephone

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

..Clear

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
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
-Description

Specifies a description of the object. This parameter sets the value of the Description property for the object. The LDAP Display Name (ldapDisplayName) for this property is "description".

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

Specifies an instance of a subnet object to use as a template for a new subnet object.

You can use an instance of an existing subnet object as a template or you can construct a new subnet object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script. The following examples show how to use these two methods to create a new subnet object.

Method 1: Use an existing subnet object as a template for a new object. To retrieve an instance of an existing subnet object, use a cmdlet such as Get-ADReplicationSubnet. Then provide this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADReplicationSubnet cmdlet to create a new subnet object. You can override property values of the new object by setting the appropriate parameters.

$objectInstance = Get-ADReplicationSubnet -Identity "10.0.0.0/25"

New-ADReplicationSubnet -Name "12.0.0.0/25" -Instance $ObjectInstance

Method 2: Create a new ADReplicationSubnet and set the property values by using the Windows PowerShell command line interface. Then pass this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADReplicationSubnet cmdlet to create the new subnet object.

$objectInstance = new-object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADReplicationSubnet

$objectInstance.Description = Branch office subnet"

New-ADReplicationSubnet -Name "10.0.0.0/25" -Instance $ObjectInstance

Note: Specified attributes are not validated, so attempting to set attributes that do not exist or cannot be set will raise an error.

Type:ADReplicationSubnet
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Location

Can be used to describe the physical location of this subnet. This value may be displayed or made visible when the subnet object appears in other Active Directory administrative tools.

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

Returns the new or modified object. By default (i.e. if -PassThru is not specified), this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies that the cmdlet remove values of an object property. Use this parameter to remove one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To remove an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can remove more than one property by specifying a semicolon-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Remove @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[]; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

For example, if you want to add the values blue and green and remove the value pink from a property with a LDAP display name of FavColors, set the Add and Remove parameters as follows.

-Add @{FavColors=Blue,Green} -Remove {FavColors=Pink}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the parameters will be applied in the following sequence:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

..Clear

Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Replace

Specifies values for an object property that will replace the current values. Use this parameter to replace one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Replace @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[], Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

For example, if you want to replace the value "555-222-2222" with the values "555-222-1111" for Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone') set the Replace parameter as follows.

-Replace @{otherTelephone='555-222-2222', '555-222-1111'}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

..Clear

Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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:
