Description

The Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata cmdlet returns an Active Directory replication partner metadata object for each of its replication partners which contains all of the relevant replication data for the partners involved. This includes attributes such as LastReplicationSuccess or LastReplicationAttempt and other data specific to each pairing of replication partners. If the results are too verbose for your needs, you can use the Partition parameter to specify a partition to narrow down the results. Optionally, you can use the Filter parameter to narrow down results as well. If no partition or filter are specified for the results, the default naming context is used and metadata for all replication partners is returned.

Examples

Example 1: Get replication partner metadata for a domain controller

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target corp-DC01

This command gets the replication metadata between corp-DC01 and its inbound partners for the default partition only.

Example 2: Get replication partner metadata for a domain controller and its inbound partners

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target corp-DC01 -PartnerType Inbound

This command gets the replication metadata between corp-DC01 and its inbound partners for the default partition only (same as above).

Example 3: Get replication partner metadata for a schema partition

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target corp-DC01,corp-DC02 -PartnerType Both -Partition Schema

This command gets the replication metadata between corp-DC01, corp-DC02 and their respective partners only (both inbound and outbound) for the schema partition.

Example 4: Get replication partner metadata for all domain controllers in a site

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target NorthAmerica -Scope Site -Partition *

This command gets the replication metadata for all the inbound partners of all the domain controllers within the NorthAmerica site for all hosted partitions.

Example 5: Get replication partner metadata for inbound partners for a default partition

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target "corp.contoso.com" -Scope Domain

This command gets the replication metadata for all the domain controllers that are inbound partners for the default partition in the domain corp.contoso.com.

Example 6: Get replication partner metadata for inbound partners in a forest

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationPartnerMetadata -Target "corp.contoso.com" -Scope Forest -Partition Configuration

This command gets the replication metadata for all the domain controllers that are inbound partners for the configuration partition in the forest corp.contoso.com.

Required Parameters

-Scope

Specifies the scope type for the Target parameter when used as input. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Server
  • Site
  • Domain
  • Forest

Server

Site

Domain

Forest

Type:ADScopeType
Parameter Sets:Server, Domain, Forest, Site
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Target

Specifies the target for returning replication partner metadata as either one or more domain controllers, sites, domains, or forests. If multiple values for the target are to be specified, they need to be separated by commas. This parameter will return results for all the domain controllers specified or for part of the specified container.

Type:Object[]
Aliases:Name, HostName, Site, Domain, Forest
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • 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.

Type:ADAuthType
Parameter Sets:Negotiate, Basic
Position:Named
Default value:None
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
-EnumerationServer

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.

Specify the instance in one of the following ways:

Domain name values:

  • Fully qualified domain name
  • NetBIOS name

Directory server values:

  • Fully qualified directory server name
  • NetBIOS name
  • Fully qualified directory server name and port

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

  • By using the Server value from objects passed through the pipeline
  • By using the server information associated with the Active Directory Domain Services Windows PowerShell provider drive, when the cmdlet runs in that drive
  • By using the domain of the computer running Windows PowerShell
Type:String
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
-Partition

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

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

Type:String[]
Aliases:NC, NamingContext
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PartnerType

Specifies an enumeration of the replication types returned by this cmdlet. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Inbound
  • Outbound
  • Both
Type:ADPartnerType
Parameter Sets:Inbound, Outbound, Both
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADDirectoryServer

A class structure that represents Active Directory server objects.

Outputs

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADReplicationPartnerMetadata

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