Description

The Set-DAMultiSite cmdlet configures global multi-site settings that are applied to all entry points, including:

-- The name of an entry point server included in the multi-site deployment.

-- The global load balancing fully qualified domain name (FQDN), if required.

-- Support for remote clients to manually select the entry point to which the clients connect.

-- The name of the multi-site deployment.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Set-DAMultiSite -ManualEntryPointSelection enabled -PassTrue

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1

This example enables users to manually select entry points when using the Windows Server 2012 Network connectivity assistant.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Set-DAMultiSite -GslbFqdn "directaccessGlobalSite.contoso.com" -PassTrue

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : directaccessglobalsite.contoso.com 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1

This example sets the FQDN of a third-party load balancer named directaccessglobalsite.contoso.com.

EXAMPLE 3

PS C:\>Set-DAMultiSite -ManualSiteSelection enabled -GslbFqdn "" -PassThru

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1

This example erases the previously defined FQDN of a third-party load balancer.

Optional Parameters

-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.
