Add-VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration

Adds a DNS suffix or name to VPN connection trigger properties.

   [-ConnectionName] <String>
   [-DnsSuffix] <String>
   [[-DnsIPAddress] <String[]>]
   [-AsJob]

   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration cmdlet adds a Domain Name System (DNS) suffix or name to the DNS trigger properties for a client. If you specify a DNS IP address for the suffix or name, when the client accesses a resource in the suffix, the client starts a virtual private network (VPN) connection. If you do not specify a DNS IP address for a DNS suffix or name, accessing the suffix or name does not trigger the VPN connection.

If you previously ran the Set-VpnConnectionTriggerTrustedNetwork cmdlet with the DefaultDnsSuffixes parameter specified, the current cmdlet adds the DNS suffix to the trusted Network list. This cmdlet does not add DNS suffixes that do not have DNS server addresses.

Examples

Example 1: Add a DNS suffix

PS C:\>Add-VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -DnsSuffix "washington.contoso.com" -DnsIPAddress "172.16.12.23" -PassThru
WARNING: The suffix washington.contoso.com will be automatically added to 

the trusted network detection list. Any subsequent addition/removal of 

suffixes from this cmdlet will be reflected in the trusted network 

detection list. If you do not want this auto-population, remove the 

suffixes from the trusted network detection list by using the 

cmdlet Remove-VpnConnectionTriggerTrustedNetwork 

ConnectionName       DnsSuffix            DnsIPAddress                             DnsSuffixSearchList

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

Contoso              washington.contos... {172.16.12.23}

This command adds the DNS suffix washington.contoso.com to the trigger properties for the current client. The command specifies the VPN connection profile named Contoso and an address for a DNS server for this suffix. The command includes the PassThru parameter. Therefore, it returns the VPN connection DNS trigger properties for the client.

In this example, Trigger Trusted Network has the default value. Therefore the command adds the suffix to the trusted network detection list.

Example 2: Add a DNS suffix that has multiple DNS servers

PS C:\>Add-VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -DnsSuffix "newyork.contoso.com" -DnsIPAddress "172.16.12.3", "172.16.12.22" -PassThru
ConnectionName       DnsSuffix            DnsIPAddress                             DnsSuffixSearchList

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

Contoso              newyork.contoso.com  {172.16.12.3, 172.16.12.22}

This command adds the DNS suffix newyork.contoso.com to the trigger properties for the current client. The command specifies the VPN connection profile named Contoso and multiple addresses for DNS servers. The command includes the PassThru parameter. Therefore, it returns the VPN connection DNS trigger properties for the client.

Example 3: Add a DNS suffix that does not trigger a VPN connection

PS C:\>Add-VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -DnsSuffix "ras.washington.contoso.com" -PassThru
ConnectionName       DnsSuffix            DnsIPAddress                             DnsSuffixSearchList

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

Contoso              ras.washington.co...

This command adds the DNS suffix ras.washington.contoso.com to the trigger properties for the current client. The command specifies the VPN connection profile named Contoso. Unlike the previous examples, this command does not specify an address for a DNS server. When this client accesses resources from ras.washington.contoso.com, it does not trigger a VPN connection. The command includes the PassThru parameter. Therefore, it returns the VPN connection DNS trigger properties for the client.

Required Parameters

-ConnectionName

Specifies the name of a VPN connection profile. To view existing VPN connection profiles, use the Get-VpnConnection cmdlet.

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

Specifies a DNS suffix.

Type:String
Position:2
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
-DnsIPAddress

Specifies an array IP addresses of DNS servers for the DNS suffix. You can use both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

If you do not specify a DNS server, the client does not start a VPN connection when the client accesses a resource with the DNS suffix or name.

Type:String[]
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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. If you specify this parameter, the cmdlet returns the VpnConnectionTriggerDnsConfiguration object that contains DNS suffixes and corresponding DNS servers.

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
