Description

The Register-DnsServerDirectoryPartition cmdlet registers a Domain Name System (DNS) server in a DNS application directory partition. After you create a Domain Name System (DNS) application directory partition to store a zone, you must register the DNS server that hosts the zone in the application directory partition. After you register a DNS server in a DNS application directory partition, the DNS server adds itself the to the replication scope of the DNS application directory partitions.

Examples

Example 1: Register a DNS server to a directory application partition

PS C:\> Register-DnsServerDirectoryPartition -Name "ADpart"

This command adds the local DNS server to the directory application partition named ADpart.

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.

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

-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.
