Grant-DfsnAccess
     [-Path] <String>
     [-AccountName] <String[]>
     [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]

Description

The Grant-DfsnAccess cmdlet grants permissions to users and groups for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. This cmdlet grants permissions to access a folder and to enumerate its contents. You can use the Get-DfsnAccess cmdlet to see the current permissions, and you can use the Revoke-DfsnAccesscmdlet cmdlet to revoke permissions.

For a DFS namespace which has Access-based enumeration enabled, users can see only the folders that they can access.

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

Examples

Example 1: Grant permissions to a user

PS C:\> Grant-DfsnAccess -Path "\\Contoso\Software\Projects" -AccountName "TSQA\PattiFuller"

AccessType     : Enumerate
AccountName    : TSQA\PattiFuller
NamespacePath  : \\Contoso\Software\Projects
PSComputerName :

This command grants the user TSQA\PattiFuller permissions for the folder \\Contoso\Software\Projects.

Required Parameters

-AccountName

Specifies an array of user and group accounts. This cmdlet grants permissions to the accounts specified.

Type:String[]
Aliases:Account, user
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Path

Specifies a path for a DFS namespace folder. This cmdlet grants permissions to access the folder specified.

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.

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.

-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.
