Description

The Enable-DnsServerPolicy cmdlet enables Domain Name System (DNS) server policies. You can enable both query resolution policies and zone transfer policies. Specify a single policy by name. If you do not specify a name, this cmdlet enables all policies for the zone or domain that you specify.

Examples

Example 1: Enable a zone level policy

PS C:\> Enable-DnsServerPolicy -Level Zone -Name "Policy07" -ZoneName "EuropeZone"

This command enables a zone level policy named Policy07. This policy can be either a query resolution policy or a zone transfer policy.

Example 2: Enable a server level policy

PS C:\> Enable-DnsServerPolicy -Level Server -Name "Policy22"

This command enables a server level policy named Policy22.

Example 3: Enable all zone level policies

PS C:\> Enable-DnsServerPolicy -Level Zone -ZoneName "EuropeZone"

This command enables all the policies in the zone named EuropeZone.

Example 4: Enable all server level policies

PS C:\> Enable-DnsServerPolicy -Level Server

This command enables all the server level policies.

Required Parameters

-Level

Specifies which level at which to enable policies. The acceptable values for this parameter are: Zone and Server.

Type:String
Parameter Sets:Zone, Server
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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.

-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.
