How to set DPM Azure Throttling with Powershell

When you set the System Center DPM setting for Azure throttling via GUI, you have to do the full wizard and also enter the azure passphrase to save the settings.

If you happen to not have the key handy or for some other reason want to do it via Powershell, here is the command.

Easy as that, but I couldn’t find any examples on Microsoft Docs, just how to disable throttling. The script sets the settings as in the screenshot above, you might want to adjust the bandwidth etc, it’s defined in bits.

Use DHCP Scope info to build DNS Reverse Lookup Zones and configure DNS with Powershell

I had a customer with more than 60 DHCP Scopes but all DNS Reverse Lookup Zones were unfortunately not created, configured and/or consisted of a lot of old invalid static records. And in addition both the Primary and Reverse Zones were containing a lot of old Name Servers.

Here is the scripts I ran to fix the issues. Just remove the -whatif to actually make it do stuff.

In this case, our Name Servers had the name standard ADM-V-ADDS…. so the script will remove all other name servers. Obviously, modify to fit your environment!
