Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority RootCA | Get-CrlDistributionPoint | Add-CrlDistributionPoint -NewURI "6:http://crl.domain.com/%3%8%9.crl" | Set-CrlDistributionPoint -RestartCA

This example will add new CDP URI to certificate CDP for 'RootCA' CA server. Also this will add new URI in Freshest CRL in CRL CDP to locate corresponding Delta CRL. After command completion CA services will be restarted to immediately apply changes.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority | Get-CrlDistributionPoint | Add-CrlDistributionPoint -NewURI "65:\\ServerName\crlfile%9.crl", "65:C:\CertData\%3%8%9.crl" | Set-CrlDistributionPoint -RestartCA

This example will add new paths for Base and Delta CRL file publication for all CAs in the current forest. This will not add any new URIs in certificate CDP extension, but instructs CA to publish physical CRL files to specified locations. After command completion CA services will be restarted to immediately apply changes.

Example 3

PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority -Name MyCA | Get-CrlDistributionPoint | Remove-CrlDistributionPoint -URI "*c:\windows*" | Set-CrlDistributionPoint -RestartCA

This example will remove all CDP URIs that contains "c:\windows" pattern. After command completion certificate services will be restarted to immediately apply changes.

Example 4

PS C:\> Get-CertificationAuthority -Name MyCA | Get-CrlDistributionPoint | Remove-CrlDistributionPoint -URI "*ldap://*" | Set-CrlDistributionPoint -RestartCA

This example will remove all URIs that are used for CRL file publication and/or retrieval from Active Directory. After command completion certificate services will be restarted to immediately apply changes.
