Syntax

Get-DfsnRootTarget

   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-DfsnRootTarget cmdlet gets settings for root targets of a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace. You can specify a DFS namespace path to see all the root targets for that namespace. You can specify a namespace path and a target path to see settings for a single root target.

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

Examples

Example 1: Get root targets for a DFS namespace

PS C:\> Get-DfsnRootTarget -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingSoftware"

This command gets the DFS namespace root targets for the namespace that has the path \\Contoso\AccountingSoftware.

Example 2: Get a specified root target

PS C:\> Get-DfsnRootTarget -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingSoftware" -TargetPath "\\Contoso-FS\Software"

This command gets a single root target, specified by using the path \\Contoso\AccountingSoftware and the target path \\Contoso-FS\Software.

Required Parameters

-Path

Specifies a path for the root folder of a DFS namespace.

Type:String
Aliases:DfsPath, NamespaceRoot
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.

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-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
-TargetPath

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

Type:String
Aliases:Target, DfsTarget, RootTargetPath
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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
