Description

Enable-DAManualEntryPointSelection allows a user to manually choose which DirectAccess entry point to use for connectivity. This cmdlet succeeds only when the client computer is outside of the corporate network perimeter, and DirectAccess is deployed.

Computers configured for multisite DirectAccess automatically pick the best entry point to use for connectivity. A user might want to override the entry point that is automatically selected; for example, to help troubleshoot network connectivity. This cmdlet allows a user to manually choose a DirectAccess entry point.

You can prevent a user from overriding the automatic selection by using Group Policy. For more information about using Group Policy to restrict automatic selection changes, see Get-DAClientExperienceConfiguration.

Examples

Example: Enable manual DirectAccess site selection

PS C:\> Enable-DAManualEntryPointSelection -EntryPointName "Redmond"

This cmdlet enables the entry point named Redmond
