Description

The Add-DnsServerRootHint cmdlet adds root hints on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. You can add root hints by specifying the DNS name server and IP address, or you can use the InputObject parameter to specify a DnsServerRootHint object.

Examples

Example 1: Add a root hint to a DNS server by using IP address

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerRootHint -NameServer "root.contoso.com" -IPAddress 172.23.90.128

This command adds the IP address 172.23.90.128 for the name server root.contoso.com to the list of root hints on the local DNS server.

Example 2: Add a root hint to a DNS server by using an IPv6 address

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerRootHint -NameServer "root.contoso.com" -IPAddress 2001:4898:7020:f100:458f:e6a2:fcaf:698c

This command adds the IPv6 address 2001:4898:7020:f100:458f:e6a2:fcaf:698c for the name server root.contoso.com to the list of root hints on the local DNS server.

Required Parameters

-IPAddress

Specifies an array of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of DNS servers.

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

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NameServer

Specifies the fully qualified domain name of the root name server.

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 a remote DNS server. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name.

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
-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.
