Description

The Add-DnsServerZoneScope cmdlet adds a zone scope to an existing zone on the Domain Name System (DNS) server. A DNS server can load an existing scope its data file. The name of the scope should adhere to the same conventions as the zone name. The scope name cannot be same as the zone name to which this cmdlet adds it.

When a scope is created, its data is persisted in a file named %Systemroot%\system32\dns\<zone name>\<scope name>.dns.

Examples

Example 1: Add a scope on a zone

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerZoneScope -ZoneName "contoso.com" -Name "contoso_NorthAmerica" -Verbose -PassThru
VERBOSE: A scope contoso_NorthAmerica will be added for the zone contoso.com on server Server17. 

ZoneScope                 FileName
---------                 --------
contoso_NorthAmerica      contoso_NorthAmerica.dns

This command adds a scope on an existing zone named contoso.com.

Example 2: Add a scope on a zone with existing file

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerZoneScope -ZoneName "contoso.com" -Name "contoso_NorthAmerica" -LoadExisting -PassThru 
ZoneScope                 FileName
---------                 --------
contoso_NorthAmerica      contoso_NorthAmerica.dns

This command adds a scope on an existing zone named contoso.com. The command specifies the LoadExisting parameter, so the server loads the scope from an existing file.

Example 3: Add a cache scope

PS C:\> Add-DnsServerZoneScope -ZoneName "..cache" -Name "ContosoScope" -PassThru
ZoneScope             FileName
---------             --------
ContosoScope          cache.dns

This command adds a cache scope named ContosoScope.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies a name for the zone scope.

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

Specifies the name of a zone. This cmdlet adds a zone to the zone that this parameter specifies.

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

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf

-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.
