Syntax

Set-DfsReplicatedFolder
   [-GroupName] <String[]>
   [[-FolderName] <String[]>]
   [[-DomainName] <String>]
   [[-Description] <String>]
   [[-FileNameToExclude] <String[]>]

   [[-DfsnPath] <String>]
   [-Confirm]

Description

The Set-DfsReplicatedFolder cmdlet changes settings of a replicated folder in a replication group. You can use this cmdlet to modify global settings of replicated folders such as filters and Distributed File System (DFS) Namespace associations. Replicated folders are logical arrangements of replication that do not contain computer-specific settings.

Examples

Example 1: Add a description to a replicated folder

PS C:\> Set-DfsReplicatedFolder -GroupName "RG11" -FolderName "RF101" -Description "Branch Store #101, Data Collection for Backups"
GroupName              : RG11
FolderName             : RF101
DomainName             : corp.contoso.com
Identifier             : c335e8f6-bc3e-4671-8f7b-9cdc51a6b222
Description            : Branch Store #101 Data Collection for Backups
FileNameToExclude      : {~*, *.bak, *.tmp}
DirectoryNameToExclude : {}
DfsnPath               :
IsDfsnPathPublished    : False
State                  : Normal

This command sets a new description on the replicated folder named RF101 in the replication group named RG11.

Example 2: Exclude files on all replicated folders

PS C:\> Set-DfsReplicatedFolder -GroupName "RG11" -FolderName * -FileNameToExclude "~*, *.bak, *.tmp, *.ned"
GroupName              : RG11
FolderName             : RF11
DomainName             : corp.contoso.com
Identifier             : c335e8f6-bc3e-4671-8f7b-9cdc51a6b222
Description            :
FileNameToExclude      : {~*, *.bak, *.tmp, *.ned}
DirectoryNameToExclude : {}
DfsnPath               :
IsDfsnPathPublished    : False
State                  : Normal

GroupName              : RG11
FolderName             : rf12
DomainName             : corp.contoso.com
Identifier             : 50e057af-08a4-4dbb-af1c-3765620afd9e
Description            :
FileNameToExclude      : {~*, *.bak, *.tmp, *.ned}
DirectoryNameToExclude : {}
DfsnPath               :
State                  : Normal

IsDfsnPathPublished    : False

GroupName              : RG11
FolderName             : rf101
DomainName             : corp.contoso.com
Identifier             : c335e8f6-bc3e-4671-8f7b-9cdc51a6b222
Description            : Branch Store #101 Data Collection for Backups
FileNameToExclude      : {~*, *.bak, *.tmp, *.ned}
DirectoryNameToExclude : {}
DfsnPath               :
IsDfsnPathPublished    : False
State                  : Normal

This command sets the list of files to exclude from replication for all replicated folders in the RG11 replication group. The command specifies that the DFS Replication service exclude file names starting with a tilde (~) character and files that have the extensions .bak, .tmp, and .ned from replication.
