Description

The New-SqlHADREndpoint cmdlet creates a database mirroring endpoint on a SQL Server instance. This endpoint is required on every server instance that hosts an availability replica for any availability group. Each server instance can only have one database mirroring endpoint. If a server instance possesses a database mirroring endpoint, use the existing endpoint.

Examples

Example 1: Create a database mirroring endpoint

PS C:\> New-SqlHADREndpoint -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Computer\Instance" -Name "MainEndpoint"

This command creates a database mirroring endpoint named MainEndpoint on the server instance located at the specified path. This endpoint uses the default port, 5022.

Example 2: Create a database mirroring endpoint that requires encryption

PS C:\> New-SqlHADREndpoint -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Computer\Instance" -Name "MainEndpoint" -Port 4022 -EncryptionAlgorithm Aes' -Encryption Required

This command creates a database mirroring endpoint named MainEndpoint on the server instance located at the specified path. This endpoint listens on port 4022. The endpoint uses the AES algorithm for encryption and requires that connections use encryption.

Example 3: Create a database mirroring endpoint that is encrypted with a certificate

PS C:\> New-SqlHADREndpoint -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Computer\Instance" -Name "MainEndpoint" -AuthenticationOrder 
Certificate -Certificate "EncryptionCertificate"

This command creates a database mirroring endpoint named MainEndpoint on the server instance located at the specified path. This endpoint uses the certificate named EncryptionCertificate to authenticate connections.

Example 4: Create a database mirroring endpoint script

PS C:\> New-SqlHADREndpoint -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Computer\Instance" -Name "MainEndpoint" -Script

This command outputs the Transact-SQL script that creates a database mirroring endpoint named MainEndpoint on the server instance located at the specified path. The endpoint is not actually created by this command.

Parameters

-Port

Specifies the TCP port on which the endpoint will listen for connections. The default is 5022.

Type:Int32
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Owner

Specifies the login of the owner of the endpoint. By default, this is the current login.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Certificate

Specifies the name of the certificate that the endpoint will use to authenticate connections. The far endpoint must have a certificate with the public key matching the private key of the certificate.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IpAddress

Specifies the IP address of the endpoint. The default is ALL, which indicates that the listener accepts a connection on any valid IP address.

Type:IPAddress
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AuthenticationOrder

Specifies the order and type of authentication that is used by the endpoint. Valid values are:

- Certificate

  • CertificateKerberos
  • CertificateNegotiate
  • CertificateNtlm
  • Kerberos
  • KerberosCertificate
  • Negotiate
  • NegotiateCertificate
  • Ntlm
  • NtlmCertificate.

    If the specified option calls for a certificate, the Certificate parameter must be set.

Type:EndpointAuthenticationOrder
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Encryption

Specifies the encryption option for the endpoint. Valid values are:

- Disabled

  • Supported
  • Required

    Required is the default value.

Type:EndpointEncryption
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EncryptionAlgorithm

Specifies the form of encryption used by the endpoint. Valid values are:

- Aes

  • AesRC4
  • None
  • RC4
  • RC4Aes

    By default the endpoint will use Aes encryption.

    The RC4 algorithm is only supported for backward compatibility. New material can only be encrypted using RC4 or RC4_128 when the database is in compatibility level 90 or 100, but this is not recommended. For increased security, use a newer algorithm such as one of the AES algorithms instead.

Type:EndpointEncryptionAlgorithm
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the endpoint name. This parameter is required.

Type:String
Required:True
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Path

Specifies the path to the SQL Server instance of the endpoint. This parameter is optional. If not specified, the current working location is used.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Script

Indicates that this cmdlet returns a Transact-SQL script that performs the task.

Type:SwitchParameter
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationAction

Specifies how this cmdlet responds to an information event.

The acceptable values for this parameter are:

- Continue

  • Ignore
  • Inquire
  • SilentlyContinue
  • Stop
  • Suspend

Type:ActionPreference
Aliases:infa
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationVariable

Specifies an information variable.

Type:String
Aliases:iv
Required:False
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
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies the server object of the SQL Server instance where the endpoint is created.

Type:Server
Required:True
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
