How to move Subnet to a diff Site in AD with powershell

I am collapsing a site in AD due to a topology change. I am looking for a PowerShell command to move all of the subnets associated with that Site to a different site... any quick way short of exporting, deleting and re-creating? thanks for any suggestions

Windows Server 2008 does not have a command to do this in PowerShell without re-creating the AD object.  You would have to use something like ADMOD to do this:
admod -b cn=<Subnet-Name>,cn=Subnets,cn=Sites,cn=Configuration,dc=YourForest,dc=net objectClass::subnet siteObject::<New-Site-DN>

Open in new window

The PowerShell commands to do this were added in server 2012
Set-ADReplicationSubnet -Identity <Subnet-Name> -Site <New-Site-Name>

Open in new window
