ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid

ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid

dfsrpowershell.dll

Synopsis

Translates GUIDs to friendly names within a given replication group.

Syntax

ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid [-GroupName] [-DomainName] [-Guid] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid cmdlet translates DFS Replication GUIDs to friendly names within a given replication group. DFS Replication uses GUIDs to represent the friendly names of various objects and metadata. DFS Replication writes these GUIDs to Active Directory, XML files, the event log, and debug logs. This cmdlet converts GUIDs for connections (connid), replicated folders (csid), replication groups (rgid), volumes (volumeid), members (memberid), and databases (dbguid).

Parameters

-DomainName <String>

Specifies a NetBIOS or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for an Active Directory domain that contains the replication group. If you do not specify, the cmdlet uses the current domain of the user.

Examples

Convert a GUID to a friendly name

This command uses the ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid cmdlet to convert a replicated folder GUID to its friendly details.

PS C:\>ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid -GroupName RG01 "9268F23A-7701-4184-8B8B-4BFDBB8AC411"
GroupName              : RG01
FolderName             : RF01
DomainName             : corp.contoso.com
Identifier             : 9268f23a-7701-4184-8b8b-4bfdbb8ac411
Description            :
FileNameToExclude      : {~*, *.bak, *.tmp}
DirectoryNameToExclude : {}
DfsnPath               :
IsDfsnPathPublished    : False


Example 2: Determine which server originated a file modification

This example looks up a Global Version Sequence Number (GUID) for a file, and then looks up the name of the server that originated that change.

The first command uses the Get-DfsrIdRecord cmdlet to lookup a file’s Global Version Sequence Number (GUID).

The second command looks up the server that originated thechange.

PS C:\>Get-DfsrIdRecord -Path C:\rf01\canary.bmp | Format-List global* GlobalVersionSequenceNumber : {B34A6F21-A20D-402D-9BE1-467309C21CDF}-v20
PS C:\> ConvertFrom-DfsrGuid -GroupName Rg01 -guid B34A6F21-A20D-402D-9BE1-467309C21CDF

ComputerName : SRV01
DomainName   : corp.contoso.com
VolumeGuid   : 9ee0fc3b-a906-11e2-8f95-806e6f6e6963
SerialNumber : 903727946
Path         : \\.\C:
DatabaseGuid : B34A6F21-A20D-402D-9BE1-467309C21CDF
