   [-AsJob]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ComputerName <String>]

Description

The Set-DAAppServerConnection cmdlet configures the properties of the connection to application servers and the IPsec security traffic protection policies for the connection. This cmdlet is not applicable when DirectAccess (DA) is deployed only for the management of remote clients and when no application servers have been configured.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This cmdlet checks the connection type setting that is configured.
PS C:\>Get-DAAppServer -ComputerName edge1.corp.contoso.com
SecurityGroupNameList:    {corp.contoso.com\daappservergrp} 
GpoName              :    {corp.contoso.com\DirectAccess Application Server Settings} 
ConnectionType       :    E2EAuthOnlyToAppServer 
TrafficProtection    :    Enabled 

This cmdlet changes the value of the **ConnectionType** parameter from authentication required only to application servers (E2EAuthOnlyToAppServer) to mandatory authentication for all servers in the corporate network (E2EAuthRequiredToAllServer).
PS C:\>Set-DAAppServerConnection -ConnectionType E2EAuthRequiredToAllServers -TrafficProtection Enabled -PassThru
ConnectionType       :    E2EAuthRequiredToAllServer 
TrafficProtection    :    Enabled

This example enables end to end authentication for all servers in organization.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

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 the IPv4 or IPv6 address, or host name of the computer, on which the Remote Access server computer specific tasks should be run.

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
-ConnectionType

Specifies the type of connection to the corporate network. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • NoE2EAuth. Connection requires no end-to-end authentication.

  • E2EAuthOnlyToAppServer. Connection requires end-to-end authentication only to the configured application servers and not to other servers in the corporate network.

  • E2EAuthRequiredToAllServers. Connection permits access only to the configured application servers through end-to-end authentication and does not permit access to other servers in the corporate network.

If you specify NoE2EAuth, the cmdlet automatically removes all the application server security groups and Group Policy Objects from the DA deployment, and the user can access all the corporate network servers over a full tunnel to the DA server. IPsec security traffic protection is not applicable for the connection if you specify NoE2EAuth as the connection type.

Type:String
Parameter Sets:NoE2EAuth, E2EAuthOnlyToAppServer, E2EAuthRequiredToAllServers
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns the application server connection object which contains the properties of the connectivity to the corporate network. 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
-TrafficProtection

Specifies the property of the IPsec connection to the application servers. IPsec traffic protection is not applicable for the connection if you specify NoE2EAuth for the ConnectionType parameter. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Enabled. Traffic protection is enabled.

  • Disabled. Traffic protection is disabled and the connection requires authentication.

Type:String
Parameter Sets:Enabled, Disabled
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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

Inputs

None

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DAAppServerConnection

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.

The DAAppServerConnection object consists of the following properties:

-- The property of the connection to an application server.

-- The status of IPsec traffic protection: Enabled or Disabled.

-- The application server connectivity properties are applicable to all application servers in the DA deployment.
