It is available only in the on-premises Exchange. To view information about one or more active directory site (s), use the Get-AdSite cmdlet. Choose the desired site from the list. Microsoft Outlook uses Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook to provide a single, integrated solution that enables users to easily and efficiently manage and manage their Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook applications. Before you can run this Cmdlet, you must have privileges.
Even though this topic includes all of the parameter for the cmdlet, you might not have control over some of them if they are not contained in the privilege sets that are associated with them. In this example, the Active Directory site config detail is displayed with the name Default First Site Name. DomainController The DomainController parameter indicates the DomainController that is used by this command-let to retrieve information from Active Directory or to type information into Active Directory.
DomainController parameters are not available on Edge Transport Server. A Edge Transport uses the locale Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instances to load and load information. Authentication uses the Authentication dialog box to specify the authenticity of the Active Directory site for which you want to display authentication information. You can express the GUID or the name of the Active Directory site.
When the Active Directory site name contains space characters, include the name in quotes ("). For example, if the Input Type box for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet will not receive anything that is entered. When the Output type box is empty, themdlet does not output any information.
Use PowerShell to retrieve Active Directory site information
A lot of people who work with the Active Directory use PowerShell to retrieve information from it. PowerShell provides enough PowerShell cmdlets for managing Microsoft' s Active Directory operation. You can, for example, use the Get-ADUser PowerShell cmdlet to retrieve credentials from your system using Active Directory. Can use other Active Directory PowerShell cmdlets, such as Get-ADComputer, to get computer information from the Active Directory, and so on.
In addition to retrieving information about users and computers, you can gather information such as AD sites built in Active Directory, gather AD site hyperlinks, and retrieve information to learn how many AD sites are not associated with Active Directory site hyperlinks. In order to retrieve AD sites in an Active Directory forest, it is necessary to build a new PowerShell object that will access the System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.
You collect Active Directory sites in the $ADSites variables by running the following PowerShell commands. 1. When all Active Directory site information is saved in the $ADSites variables, you can use a PowerShell ForEach ribbon to gain control of the information. From the first row in the PowerShell above instructions, the Active Directory tree in which you want to retrieve the Active Directory sites is located.
A second PowerShell statement generates a new item that associates with System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory. DirectoryContext, which in turn associates with the Active Directory ForestName specified in the $CurForestName variables. This PowerShell utility collects the Active Directory site information in an $ADSites Array tag. When Active Directory site information is gathered in the $ADSites variables, you can retrieve the information by using the ForEach PowerShell cycle as shown below:
PowerShell above command returns the name of the Active Directory site and its site text when used. If you want to save the resulting data to a CSV format for future use, run the following PowerShell commands: $ADSiteInfo = "C:\Temp\ADSiteInfo. CSV " After you run the PowerShell above scripts, the final results generate a reporting filename in the C: \Temp directory that contains the Active Directory name and site descriptor text.
Please be aware that we only access two Active Directory site attributes via the $ADSites variables. Let's take a look at the next example that will help you gather the Active Directory sites that were built in the Active Directory woods but not associated with an AD site hyperlink.
Understanding that each AD site must be associated with an AD site hyperlink is important in order for the Active Directory KCC components to be able to create necessary connectivity items between domains Controllers. For the Active Directory sites that are not included in an AD site hyperlink, run the PowerShell script below:
CSV " The above PowerShell script verifies that the $SiteLinks variables contains a value for the currently active AD site. The $SiteLinks variables does not contain a value, so this AD site is treated as an empty site. CSV reports include the AD site name, AD site space, and whether the AD site is linked to an AD site hyperlink or not, as shown in the screen shot below:
You can see from the above issue that SiteC is not linked to an Active Directory site hyperlink. Be sure to check the entire issue and ensure that all AD sites are linked to an AD site as well. When an AD site has no Active Directory Woods roles, you must delete it.
Once subnetworks of users are linked to the AD site, you must make sure that you are linking the AD site to an AD site hyperlink. To see how simple it is to gather the information about Active Directory sites from an Active Directory forest by building a PowerShell object that links System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.DirectoryContext, you can click the
Use the PowerShell ForEach ribbon to gain control over the information saved in a global file. We' ve also talked about how simple it is to create a listing of AD sites that are not linked to AD sites. is an MCSEx3, MCITP and has received the Microsoft MVP Awards in Directory Services and Windows Networking.
