Description

The Export-DnsServerZone cmdlet creates a file containing resource records for an Active Directory-integrated zone for troubleshooting purposes. This file is not in the same format as a file-backed zonefile. By default, the cmdlet places the file in the Domain Name System (DNS) directory.

Examples

Example 1: Export a zone

PS C:\> Export-DnsServerZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -FileName "exportedcontoso.com"

This command exports the zone named western.contoso.com to a file called exportedcontoso.com.

Required Parameters

-FileName

Specifies a name for the export file. You can include a file path.

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

Specifies a name of a zone. The cmdlet exports the records for this zone.

Aliases:ZoneName
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)

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.

-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.
