Description

The Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone cmdlet adds a specified secondary zone on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. You can create either a forward lookup zone or a reverse lookup zone. To create a reverse lookup zone, specify a network ID by using the NetworkID parameter, or specify a full reverse lookup zone name by using the Name parameter.

Examples

Example 1: Add a secondary DNS server zone

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -ZoneFile "western.contoso.com.dns" -MasterServers 172.23.90.124

This command creates a secondary DNS zone named western.contoso.com with the specified master server. This zone is file-backed.

Example 2: Create secondary zones

PS C:\> Get-DnsServerZone -ComputerName win-olpn33s5q3m.mytest.contoso.com | where {("Primary" -eq $_.ZoneType) -and ($False -eq $_.IsAutoCreated) -and ("TrustAnchors" -ne $_.ZoneName)} | %{ $_ | Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone -MasterServers 172.23.90.136 -ZoneFile "$($_.ZoneName).dns"}

This example gets primary zones from the server win-olpn33s5q3m.mytest.contoso.com and creates secondary zones, except TrustAnchors and AutoCreated zones, on the local system.

Required Parameters

-MasterServers

Specifies an array of IP addresses of the master servers of the zone. You can use both IPv4 and IPv6.

Type:IPAddress[]
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies a name of a zone.

Type:String
Aliases:ZoneName
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NetworkId

Specifies a network ID and prefix length for a reverse lookup zone. Use the format A.B.C.D/prefix for IPv4 or 1111:2222:3333:4444::/prefix for IPv6.

For IPv4, the cmdlet creates only class A, B, C, or D reverse lookup zones. If you specify a prefix that is between classes, the cmdlet uses the longer prefix that is divisible by 8. For example, a value of 10.2.10.0/23 adds the 10.2.10.0/24 reverse lookup zone, and the 10.2.11.0/24 reverse lookup zone is not created. If you enter an IPv4 prefix longer than /24, the cmdlet creates a /32 reverse lookup zone.

For IPv6, the cmdlet creates ip6.arpa zones for prefixes from /16 to /128 that are divisible by 4. If you specify a prefix that is between values, the cmdlet uses the longer prefix that is divisible by 4. For example, entering a value of AAAA::/58 adds the AAAA::/60 ip6.arpa zone. If you do not enter a prefix, the cmdlet uses a default prefix value of /128.

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

Specifies the name of the zone file. This parameter is only relevant for file-backed DNS.

Type:String
Position:2
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 DNS server. If you do not specify this parameter, the command runs on the local system. 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
-LoadExisting

Indicates that the server loads an existing file for the zone. If you do not specify this parameter, this cmdlet creates default zone records automatically. This parameter is relevant only for file-backed zones.

Type:SwitchParameter
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
-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
