Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OfflineAddressBookIdParameter

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID, distinguished name or OAB name that represents a specific OAB. You can also include the path by using the format Server\OfflineAddressBookName.

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

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory, include the DomainController parameter on the command.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, 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 parameter.

 

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

In this example, the Update-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet is used to update the OAB named "MyOAB."
