Move-OfflineAddressBook

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-15

Use the Move-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet to designate a new server responsible for generating the offline address book (OAB).


Move-OfflineAddressBook -Identity <OfflineAddressBookIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Some situations require the OAB to be moved. For example, if you purchase new hardware to replace your computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 that has the Mailbox server role installed and is responsible for generating the OAB, you run the Move-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet to move the OAB generating task to another 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 Mailbox Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OfflineAddressBookIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the GUID, distinguished name (DN), 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 so that only the OAB 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.

Server

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the Mailbox server on which to perform the selected operation.

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.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example moves OAB generation to the server SERVER1.
