Initiates an update of the DFS Replication service.
Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD [-ComputerName] [<CommonParameters>]
The Update-DfsrConfigurationFromAD cmdlet initiates an update of the DFS Replication service. The cmdlet forces the DFS Replication service to immediately perform a full Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) poll of the Active Directory Domain Services (AD°DS) for configuration changes, and applies any changes to the service.
By default, the DFS Replication service queries domain controllers every five minutes by using a lightweight check for membership configuration changes in AD°DS. This periodic check speeds up the service response to certain types of configuration changes. If the DFS Replication service detects a new membership, a full poll follows. By default, the DFS Replication service performs a full poll every hour.
Specifies an array of names of member computers. You can use a comma separated list and the wildcard character (*). The cmdlet forces the DFS Replication service on the computers to poll Active Directory immediately.
If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the local computer. To return a response, use the Verbose parameter.
