PS C:\> Get-DnsServerDirectoryPartition
server.DirectoryPartitionName        State                         Flags                         ZoneCount

-----------------------------        -----                         -----                         ---------

DomainDnsZones.mytest.cont...        0(DNS_DP_OKAY)                Enlisted Auto Domain          3

ForestDnsZones.mytest.cont...        0(DNS_DP_OKAY)                Enlisted Auto Forest          2

This command gets all the DNS application directory partitions on the local computer.

Example 2: Get all custom application directory partitions

DomainDnsZones.mytest.cont... 0(DNS_DP_OKAY)                Enlisted Auto Domain          3

This command gets all the custom application directory partitions on the local computer.

Example 3: Get an application directory partition by using name

PS C:\> Get-DnsServerDirectoryPartition -Name "DomainDnsZones.dept.contoso.com"

This command gets the DNS application directory partition named DomainDnsZones.dept.contoso.com on the local computer.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the FQDN of a DNS application directory partition.

Type:String
Aliases:DirectoryPartitionName
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
-Custom

Indicates that this cmdlet returns custom directory partitions.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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
