Description

The Import-DnsServerTrustAnchor cmdlet imports a trust anchor from a specified file for a Domain Name System (DNS) server. If you specify a key set file, the cmdlet imports the DNS public key (DNSKEY) record set from the input key set file. This is the default parameter set.

If you specify a delegation signer (DS) set file, the cmdlet imports the DS record set from the input dsset file. If no trust anchor exists, the cmdlet creates one before it imports a trust anchor.

Examples

Example 1: Import a trust anchor by using a key set file

PS C:\> Import-DnsServerTrustAnchor -KeySetFile "C:\Windows\System32\dns\keyset-west.contoso.com" -PassThru -Verbose

This command imports a trust anchor for the zone named west.contoso.com by using a specified key set file.

Example 2: Import a trust record by using a DS set file

PS C:\> Import-DnsServerTrustAnchor -DSSetFile "C:\Windows\System32\dns\dsset-west.contoso.com" -PassThru -Verbose

This command imports a trust anchor (DS record) for the zone named west.contoso.com by using a specified DS set file.

Required Parameters

-DSSetFile

Specifies the path of a DS set file.

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

Specifies the path of a key set file.

Type:String
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. Specify the IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name, for the DNS server.

Type:String
Aliases:Cn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.
