I’m trying to understand this syntax in the help for Set-DNSServerCache.
The parameter MaxTTL is described as follows in the online help. I’m wondering how I should interpret the datatype
-MaxTtl Specifies how many seconds (0x0-0xFFFFFFFF) a record is saved in cache. If you use the 0x0 setting, the DNS server does not cache records. The default setting is 0x15180 (86,400 seconds, or one day). https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649852.aspx
It looks like I pass it the value in seconds but the information provided isn’t really clear. I don’t want to mess up my DC/DNS.
Furthermore, if I run this cmdlet I get a different format
Get-DnsServerCache -ComputerName localhost | Select MaxTTL, ZoneName MaxTTL ZoneName ------ -------- 1.00:00:00 .
There is only one example provided for the Set-DNSServerCache cmdlet and it doesn’t cover my use case.
Does anyone know how to interpret this? I don’t have a test W2012R2 DC to play with unfortunately
