Add-DhcpServerv4Superscope

Adds scopes to a superscope.

Syntax

Add-DhcpServerv4Superscope
   [-SuperscopeName] <String>
   [-ScopeId] <IPAddress[]>
   [-AsJob]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ComputerName <String>]
   [-Confirm]
   [-Force]
   [-PassThru]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-DhcpServerv4Superscope cmdlet adds one or more specified IPv4 scopes to a superscope. If the superscope does not exist, the cmdlet creates the superscope. The IPv4 scopes to be added must already exist. If a scope already belongs to another superscope, the scope is not moved to be part of the new superscope unless you specify the Force parameter.

Examples

Example 1: Add scopes to a superscope

PS C:\> Add-DhcpServerv4Superscope -SuperscopeName "Expanded Lab-4 Network" -ScopeId 10.1.1.0, 10.1.2.0

This example adds the scopes 10.1.1.0 and 10.1.2.0 to the superscope named Expanded Lab-4 Network on the DHCP server service that runs on the local computer.

Example 2: Add scopes to a superscope regardless of pervious association

PS C:\> Add-DhcpServerv4Superscope -SuperscopeName "Expanded Lab-5 Network" -ScopeId 10.1.1.0, 10.1.2.0 -Force

This example adds the scopes 10.1.1.0 and 10.1.2.0 to the superscope named Expanded Lab-5 Network on the DHCP server service that runs on the local computer. The Force parameter makes sure that the scopes are removed from the existing superscope association, if any exist. Since the older superscope does not contain any scopes, the superscope is automatically deleted.

Required Parameters

-ScopeId

Specifies the IPv4 address of one or more scopes which must be added to superscope specified in the SuperscopeName parameter. The specified scope must already exist.

Type:IPAddress[]
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SuperscopeName

Specifies the name of the superscope to which the scopes are added.

Type:String
Position:1
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
-ComputerName

Specifies the DNS name, or IPv4 or IPv6 address, of the target computer that runs the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service.

Type:String
Aliases:Cn
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

Specifies that, if a specified scope is already part of a different superscope, the scope is removed from that superscope and added to the specified superscope.

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

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
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.

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
