Set-DnsServerGlobalQueryBlockList

Set-DnsServerGlobalQueryBlockList

ps_dnsserverglobalqueryblocklist_v1.0.0.cdxml

Synopsis

Changes settings of a global query block list.

Syntax

Set-DnsServerGlobalQueryBlockList [-List] [-AsJob] [-CimSession] [-ComputerName] [-Enable] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Set-DnsServerGlobalQueryBlockList cmdlet changes settings of a global query block list on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. This cmdlet replaces all names in the list of names that the DNS server does not resolve with the names that you specify.

If you need the DNS server to resolve names such as ISATAP and WPAD, remove these names from the list. Web Proxy Automatic Discovery Protocol (WPAD) and Intra-site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) are two commonly deployed protocols that are particularly vulnerable to hijacking.

Parameters

-AsJob <SwitchParameter>

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession <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.

-Enable <Boolean>

Enables or disables support for the global query block list that blocks name resolution for names in the list. The DNS Server service creates and enables the global query block list by default the first time that the service starts.

When you disable the global query block list, the DNS Server service responds to queries for names in the block list. When you enable the global query block list, the DNS Server service does not respond to queries for names in the block list.

-List <String[]>

Specifies an array of host names.

This cmdlet replaces the current global query block list with a list of the names that you specify. To add a name to the list, you must also include all existing names in the list. If you do not specify any names, the cmdlet clears the block list.

By default, the global query block list contains the following items: ISATAP and WPAD. The DNS Server service removes these names when it starts the first time if it finds these names in an existing zone. If you need the DNS server to resolve names such as ISATAP and WPAD, remove them from the list.

-ThrottleLimit <Int32>

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.
