Description

The Get-DfsnFolder cmdlet gets configuration settings for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. Specify a folder by using its path.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Get settings for a specified folder

PS C:\> Get-DfsnFolder -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware"

This command displays settings for the \\Contoso\AccountingResources\LegacySoftware folder.

Example 2: Get settings for all folders in a DFS namespace

PS C:\> Get-DfsnFolder -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingResources\*"

The command uses the wildcard to get settings for all the folders in the \\Contoso\AccountingResources DFS namespace.

Required Parameters

-Path

Specifies a path for the folder. This cmdlet gets configuration settings for the DFS namespace folder that has the path specified.

You can use DFS namespace with the wildcard character to get settings for all the folders in the namespace. See the Examples section.

Type:String
Aliases:DfsPath, FolderPath, NamespacePath
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-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-CimSession or Get-CimSession 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
-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.
