   [-WhatIf]
   [-Confirm]
   [-AuthenticationPolicy <ADAuthenticationPolicy>]
   [-AuthenticationPolicySilo <ADAuthenticationPolicySilo>]

   [-PassThru]
   [-Server <String>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-ADAccountAuthenticationPolicySilo cmdlet modifies the authentication policy or authentication policy silo of an account. This cmdlet assigns authentication policy silo objects and authentication policy object to an Active Directory Domain Services account. In order for the account to belong to an authentication policy silo, you must use the Grant-ADAuthenticationPolicySiloAccess cmdlet to grant access to the object.

The Identity parameter specifies the Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy to modify. You can identify an authentication policy by its distinguished name, GUID or name. You can also use the Identity parameter to specify a variable that contains an authentication policy object, or you can use the pipeline operator to pass an authentication policy object to the Identity parameter.

Examples

Example 1: Assign an authentication policy silo and authentication policy

PS C:\> Set-ADAccountAuthenticationPolicySilo -Identity User01 -AuthenticationPolicySilo AuthenticationPolicySilo01 -AuthenticationPolicy AuthenticationPolicy01

This example assigns the authentication policy silo named AuthenticationPolicySilo01 and the authentication policy named AuthenticationPolicy01 to the user account named User01.

Example 2: Assign an authentication policy silo and authentication policy by using a filter

PS C:\> Get-ADComputer -Filter 'Name -like "NewComputer*"' | Set-ADAccountAuthenticationPolicySilo -AuthenticationPolicySilo AuthenticationPolicySilo02 -AuthenticationPolicy AuthenticationPolicy02

This example first uses the Get-ADComputer cmdlet to get all computer accounts that match the filter specified by the Filter parameter. The output of this command is passed to Set-ADAccountAuthenticatinPolicySilo to assign the authentication policy silo named AuthenticationPolicySilo02 and the authentication policy named AuthenticationPolicy02 to them.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies an Active Directory Domain Services object. Specify the Active Directory Domain Services object in one of the following formats:

  • distinguished name
  • GUID
  • Name

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

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

Type:ADAccount
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:

Parameter Sets:Negotiate, Basic
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AuthenticationPolicy

Specifies an Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy object. Specify the authentication policy object in one of the following formats:

  • A distinguished name
  • GUID
  • Name

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

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

Type:ADAuthenticationPolicy
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AuthenticationPolicySilo

Specifies an Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy silo object. Specify the authentication policy silo object in one of the following formats:

  • A distinguished name
  • GUID
  • Name

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

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

Type:ADAuthenticationPolicySilo
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform the task. 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.

By default, the cmdlet uses the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory Domain Services Windows PowerShell provider drive. If you run the cmdlet in a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

If you specify credentials that do not have permission to perform the task, the cmdlet returns an error.

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

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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
