Remove-OabVirtualDirectory

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-01-11

Use the Remove-OabVirtualDirectory cmdlet to remove a server from the offline address book (OAB) distribution points list.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Remove-OabVirtualDirectory -Identity <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example removes the default OAB virtual directory from the local server.

Remove-OabVirtualDirectory -Identity "OAB (Default Web Site)"

This example removes the default OAB virtual directory from Server1.

Remove-OabVirtualDirectory -Identity "Server1\OAB (Default Web Site)"

Some situations require the removal of an OAB virtual directory. For example, to uninstall a Client Access server that contains an OAB distribution points list, you must remove the OAB virtual directory and then re-create it on another Client Access server.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Email Address and Address Book Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.VirtualDirectoryIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the GUID, distinguished name (DN), or OAB virtual directory name that represents a specific OAB virtual directory. You can also include the path by using the format Server\OfflineAddressBookVirtualDirectoryName.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the OAB virtual directory name or GUID is supplied.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning or confirmation messages. This switch can be used when the task is run programmatically and prompting for administrative input is inappropriate. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
