Syntax

Get-DnsServerRootHint
   [-AsJob]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ComputerName <String>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]

Description

The Get-DnsServerRootHint cmdlet gets DNS root hints on a DNS server.

Examples

Example 1: Get root hints for a DNS server

PS C:\> Get-DnsServerRootHint

This command gets root hints for the local DNS server.

Example 2: Get root hints by using a resource record

PS C:\>Get-DnsServerRootHint | Where-Object {$_.NameServer.RecordData.NameServer -eq "H.Root-Servers.net."}

In this example, the Get-DnsServerRootHint cmdlet gets a list of all root hints on the local DNS server. The command then pipes that collection to the Where-Object cmdlet.

Where-Object filters the resource record to get the root hint for the DNS server that has the name H.Root-Servers.net.
