Set-BCSecretKey

Sets the cryptographic key used in the generation of segment secrets.

Syntax

Set-BCSecretKey
   [[-Passphrase] <String>]
   [-Force]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [-AsJob]
   [-WhatIf]
   [-Confirm]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-BCSecretKey cmdlet sets the cryptographic key used in the generation of segment secrets. Use this cmdlet when deploying BranchCache-enabled content servers in a cluster or behind a network load balancer. If a file or webpage exists on multiple content servers, then each server must use the same secret key; otherwise, each copy of the file will be cached separately within the branch office.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Set-BCSecretKey -Passphrase mySecretPhrase

This example sets the cryptographic key that is used in the generation of segment secrets, using the pass phrase mySecretPhrase.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

ps_cimcommon_asjob

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
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
-Force

Runs the cmdlet without prompting for confirmation.

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

Specifies the pass phrase to use in the computation of the server secret key. Run this cmdlet on each server in a cluster using the same passphrase to ensure a common segment secret is used.

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

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
