Move-OfflineAddressBook

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-28

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


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

This cmdlet designates a new server to generate the OAB. For example, if you purchase new hardware to replace your Mailbox server running Microsoft Exchange Server that is responsible for generating the OAB, you would run Move-OfflineAddressBook to move the OAB generating task to another server.

To run the Move-OfflineAddressBook cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

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

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OfflineAddressBookIdParameter

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

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

Server

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Exchange server on which to perform the selected operation.

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 retrieves data from Active Directory, include the DomainController parameter in 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.
