Description

The Set-SyncShare cmdlet modifies the settings for a Sync Share.

Examples

Example 1: Modify a sync share to enable inherited permissions

PS C:\> Set-SyncShare -Name "Share01" -InheritParentFolderPermission

This command modifies settings on the share named Share01, and sets the InheritParentFolderPermission parameter to enable the share to inherit permissions from the parent folder.

Example 2: Modify the sync share to change the user group

PS C:\> Set-SyncShare -Name "Share01" -User "ContosoGroup"

This command modifies settings on the share named Share01, and sets the user group to ContosoGroup.

Example 3: Modify a sync share to add a user group

PS C:\> $Current = Get-SyncShare -Name "Share01"
PS C:\> Set-SyncShare Share01 -User $Current.user,"ContosoEngGroup"
PS C:\> Get-SyncShare Share01
ConflictResolutionPolicy : KeepLatest
Description              : 
DevicePolicy             : Share01
Enabled                  : True
ExclusiveAccessToUser    : False
Name                     : Share01
Path                     : K:\Share01
StagingFolder            : K:\EcsStagingArea\Share01
StagingQuota             : 1099511627776

Type                     : User Data
User                     : {HRGroup, EngGroup}
UserFolderName           : %username%
PSComputerName           :

This example modifies settings on the share named Share01, and enables the user group named ContosoEngGroup to access the share.

The first command uses the Get-SyncShare cmdlet to retrieve the sync share for Share01, and assigns the results to the variable $Current.

The second command uses the Set-SyncShare cmdlet to modify the sync share and add the current user and the ContosoEngGroup to the list of users allowed to access the share.

The third command uses the Get-SyncShare cmdlet to verify the results.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies a name for the Sync Share as an array. The name that you specify has the following requirements:

  • The name must be unique on the sync server
  • The name can have a maximum of 75 characters
  • You cannot start or end a name with a space
  • You cannot end a name with a period
  • You cannot used a reserved name, such as COM1, LPT1, or NUL
  • You cannot use the following characters: <>:\"/\\|?*
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.

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
-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
-Description

Specifies a description for a sync share configuration. The description appears in Server Manager and in Windows PowerShell but is not visible to end users. The description can have a maximum of a 150 characters.

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

Specifies the fallback Enterprise ID that the Sync Share uses if it cannot successfully query Active Directory® Domain Services (nextref_adds). If the server cannot successfully query nextref_adds, the server uses the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the sync server as the fallback Enterprise ID unless you specify a different Enterprise ID by using this parameter. The Enterprise ID is issued by the work folders client to encrypt data on the PC or device.

The Enterprise ID is typically constructed by querying nextref_adds for the primary SMTP address of the user, removing the username and ampersand (user@), and sending the remainder to the client as the Enterprise ID. For instance, EvanNarvaez@Contoso.com yields the contoso.com Enterprise ID.

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

Indicates that the Sync Share inherits the permissions of the parent folder. If you specify this parameter, the user folder inherits permissions from the parent folder of the Sync Share, and administrators can access the data. If you do not specify this parameter, by default each user is granted exclusive access to their user folder, and administrators have no access rights.

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

Specifies the maximum file size, in bytes, that users can upload to the server. The minimum value that you can specify is 1 MB.

Type:UInt64
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
-PasswordAutolockExcludeDomain

Specifies a list of domain names in FQDN format whose clients are to be exempted from the password policy. If the RequirePasswordAutoLock property on the Sync Share is false, then this parameter has no effect. If RequirePasswordAutoLock is true, then clients that are members of the specified domains are not requested by work folders to enforce password length and lock policies on the device. It is assumed that their security is managed by the Group Policy of their domain.

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

Indicates whether the sync server requests that the contents of work folders be encrypted on each PC and device that accesses the Sync Share.

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

Indicates whether the device meets the following policies:

  • Password minimum length of six characters
  • Lock screen activates after a maximum of 15 minutes
  • User account lockout after a maximum of 10 failed sign-in attempts
Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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
-User

Specifies an array of security groups or users who are allowed to sync data with this Sync Share. Add accounts or security groups in Security Accounts Manager (SAM) account format.

Type:String[]
Aliases:AllowedAccount, AllowedUser

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
