Description

The Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole cmdlet transfers the role of DNS Security (DNSSEC) Key Master server. Any authoritative Domain Name System (DNS) server that hosts a primary copy of the zone can be the Key Master server.

This cmdlet attempts to connect to the current Key Master server. If it cannot connect to that server, the cmdlet does not make the change unless you specify SeizeRole.

This cmdlet prompts the user for confirmation before it transfers the role unless you use the Force switch.

Examples

Example 1: Transfer the role

PS C:\> Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole -ZoneName "west01.contoso.com" -KeyMasterServer "root.contoso.com"

This command transfers the Key Master role for the zone named west01.contoso.com to the server named keys.contoso.com. If the cmdlet cannot verify with the current Key Master server, it does not transfer the role.

Example 2: Transfer the role, required

PS C:\> Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole -ZoneName "west01.contoso.com" -KeyMasterServer "keys.contoso.com" -SeizeRole

This command transfers the Key Master role for the zone named west01.contoso.com to a server named keys.contoso.com. If the cmdlet cannot verify with the current Key Master server, the cmdlet nevertheless transfers the role.

Required Parameters

-ZoneName

Specifies a name of a zone. The cmdlet transfers the Key Master role for this zone.

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.

-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.

-KeyMasterServer

Specifies the name of a DNS server. Use a NetBIOS name, IP address, or fully qualified domain name. The cmdlet makes this server the Key Master server for the specified zone. The specified zone must be present on the DNS server as a primary zone.

Type:String

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.
