Description

The Set-DnsServerStubZone cmdlet changes settings for an existing stub zone. A stub zone is a copy of a Domain Name System (DNS) zone that contains only resource records that identify the authoritative DNS servers for that zone.

The stub zone can be a forward lookup zone or a reverse lookup zone. The stub zone can be an Active Directory-integrated zone or a file-backed zone.

Examples

Example 1: Change master servers for a stub zone

PS C:\> Set-DnsServerStubZone -Name "west03.contoso.com" -MasterServers 172.23.90.124,2001:4898:7020:f100:458f:e6a2:fcaf:698c

This command changes the master servers for a stub zone named west03.contoso.com.

Example 2: Change replication scope for a stub zone

PS C:\> Set-DnsServerStubZone  -Name "west04.contoso.com" -ReplicationScope "Domain" -PassThru

ZoneName                            ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned

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

west04.contoso.com                  Stub            False           True            False

This command changes the replication scope for a stub zone named west04.contoso.com to all DNS servers in the domain.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name of a zone. The cmdlet modifies settings for this zone.

Type:String
Aliases:ZoneName
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ReplicationScope

Specifies a partition on which to store an Active Directory-integrated zone. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Custom. Any custom directory partition that a user creates. Specify a custom directory partition by using the DirectoryPartitionName parameter.
  • Domain. The domain directory partition.
  • Forest. The ForestDnsZone directory partition.
  • Legacy. A legacy directory partition.
Type:String
Parameter Sets:Forest, Domain, Legacy, Custom
Position:Named
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 DNS server. If you do not specify this parameter, the command runs on the local system. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), Hostname, or NETBIOS name.

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
-DirectoryPartitionName

Specifies a directory partition on which to store the zone. Use this parameter when the ReplicationScope parameter has a value of Custom.

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

Specifies a list of IP addresses of a zone's primary DNS servers used locally by this DNS server only. If not configured, the MasterServers value is used; otherwise, this list is used in place of the MasterServers value. This value is ignored if the zone type is not stub.

Type:IPAddress[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MasterServers

Specifies a list of IP addresses of primary DNS servers for a zone. This value must be non-empty for any zone of a type that requires primary DNS servers: secondary, stub, or forwarder.

Type:IPAddress[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
