New-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-17

Use the New-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory cmdlet to create a new Autodiscover virtual directory on a computer that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 that has the Client Access server role installed. If your organization has multiple e-mail domains and each requires its own Autodiscover site and corresponding virtual directory, use this cmdlet to create a new Autodiscover virtual directory under a new Web site.


New-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory [-ApplicationRoot <String>] [-AppPoolId <String>] [-BasicAuthentication <$true | $false>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DigestAuthentication <$true | $false>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ExternalUrl <Uri>] [-InternalUrl <Uri>] [-Path <String>] [-TemplateInstance <PSObject>] [-WebSiteName <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WindowsAuthentication <$true | $false>]

Use the New-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory cmdlet to create a new Autodiscover virtual directory on an Exchange 2007 Client Access server. If your organization has multiple e-mail domains and each requires its own Autodiscover site and corresponding virtual directory, use this cmdlet to create a new Autodiscover virtual directory under a new Web site.

noteNote:
When you are creating a new Autodiscover virtual directory, we recommend that you enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the Autodiscover service.

To run the New-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.
