Enable-MailPublicFolder -Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To run the Enable-MailPublicFolder cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Public Folder Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

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

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.PublicFolderIdParameter

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path using the format TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

You can omit the parameter label Identity so that only the public folder 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

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller to use to write this configuration change to Active Directory. Use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that you want to use.

HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

Use the HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled parameter to specify that the folder be hidden from address lists.

Server

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the identity of the server to perform the operation from. If a server is not specified, the command checks if the local server is a Mailbox server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 with a public folder store. If it is, the folder will be created locally. If it is not, the command finds the closest (by site cost) Exchange 2007 Mailbox server that has a mounted public folder store.

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.
