Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DistributionGroupMemberIdParameter

The Identity parameter of the distribution group takes one of the following forms:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • Domain\Account name

  • Alias

Credential

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

The Credential parameter indicates the domain and user name of the account used to read Active Directory.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

ReadFromDomainController

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The ReadFromDomainController parameter specifies that the user information is read from a domain controller in the user's domain. If you set the recipient scope to include all recipients in the forest, and if you do not use this parameter, it is possible that the user information is read from a global catalog with outdated information. If you use this parameter, multiple reads might be necessary to get the information.

By default, the recipient scope is set to the domain that hosts your Exchange servers.

The ResultSize parameter indicates the maximum number of members that will be returned.
