Description

The Get-UalDns cmdlet gets User Access Logging (UAL) records for a Domain Name System (DNS) server. Use this cmdlet only for a DNS server. Use the CimSession parameter to run the cmdlet on a remote DNS server.

UAL logs DNS name requests directed to DNS servers. UAL gets this information from a DNS server only once a day.

For each client that accesses a service on a DNS server, this cmdlet returns a record that specifies the host name and the IP address of the requester. The record also includes the server role that the client requested and the name of the server product, along with the time of the most recent DNS name request from the client.

You can specify parameter values to narrow the records that this cmdlet returns. For instance, you can get records for only a specified IP address.

For more information about UAL, see the User Access Logging Overview topic in the TechNet library at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh849634.aspx.

Examples

Example 1: Get name request information for a specific IP address

PS C:\>Get-UalDns -IPAddress "10.17.44.6"

This command gets UAL records of name requests for a client device with a specified IP address.

-LastSeen

Specifies an array of dates, as DateTime objects. A time represents when the client accessed the service for the most recent time.

Type:DateTime[]
Position:Named
Default value:None

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet.

The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
