Description

The Add-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet adds an IPv6 scope to the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service with the specified parameters.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Add-DhcpServerv6Scope -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: -Name "IPv6 Lab-4 Network"

The above command adds a DHCPv6 scope with subnet prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: and specified scope name to the DHCP server running on local computer.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Add-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: -Name "IPv6 Lab-4 Network" -PreferredLifeTime 4.00:00:00 -ValidLifeTime 6.00:00:00 -State Inactive

This example adds an inactive DHCPv6 scope with the subnet prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020::, specifies the scope name, sets the preferred lifetime to 4 days, and sets the valid lifetime to 6 days to the DHCP server service running on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name associated with the scope.

Type:String
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Prefix

Specifies the IPv6 prefix of the scope being added.

Type:IPAddress
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

ps_cimcommon_asjob

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-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
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 running the DHCP server service.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Description

Specifies the description associated with the scope.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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
-Preference

Specifies the value for the preference field to be used by the DHCP server service while responding to clients in this subnet. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 0 through 255.

The default value is 0.

Type:UInt16
Position:Named
Default value:0
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PreferredLifetime

Specifies the preferred life time of the IPv6 address leased by the DHCP server service. The default value is 8 days.

This parameter value should be same or less than the ValidLifeTime parameter value.

Type:TimeSpan
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-State

Specifies the state of the scope. The acceptable values for this parameter are: Enabled or Disabled.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-T1

Specifies the lease renewal time. The default value is 4 days. The DHCP client is expected to use a unicast message to renew the lease at the time specified by this parameter value from the same DHCP server service from which DHCP client had initially obtained the lease.

This parameter value should be less than the T2 and PreferredLifetime parameter values.

Type:TimeSpan
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-T2

Specifies the lease rebind time. The default value is 6.4 days. The DHCP client is expected to use a multi-cast message to renew the lease at the time equal to this parameter value from any DHCP server service if the renewal attempt at time specified by the T1 parameter fails.

This parameter value should be greater than the T1 parameter value and less than the PreferredLifetime parameter value.

Type:TimeSpan
Position:Named
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
-ValidLifeTime

Specifies the valid life time of the IPv6 address leased by the DHCP server service. The default value is 12 days.

This parameter value should be same or greater than the PreferredLifetime parameter value.

Type:TimeSpan
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
