New-OabVirtualDirectory [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ExternalUrl <Uri>] [-InternalUrl <Uri>] [-Path <String>] [-PollInterval <Int32>] [-Recovery <SwitchParameter>] [-RequireSSL <$true | $false>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WebSiteName <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch 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 switch.

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.

ExternalUrl

Optional

System.Uri

The ExternalUrl parameter specifies the external URL that the OAB virtual directory points to.

InternalUrl

Optional

System.Uri

The InternalUrl parameter specifies the internal URL that the OAB virtual directory points to.

Path

Optional

System.String

The Path parameter specifies the path to the folder that hosts the OAB virtual directory.

PollInterval

Optional

System.Int32

The PollInterval parameter specifies the time interval (in minutes) that the distribution service should poll the generation server for new updates.

Recovery

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Recovery parameter specifies whether to support Setup recovery mode and is used implicitly by Setup when recovery is performed. It's never necessary to specify this parameter.

RequireSSL

Optional

System.Boolean

The RequireSSL parameter specifies whether to require Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to access the OAB virtual directory. If set to $true, the RequireSSL parameter requires SSL to access the OAB virtual directory.

Server

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the name of the server to connect. Enter the Server parameter as a host name or an FQDN. If this parameter isn't used, the local server is queried.

WebSiteName

Optional

System.String

The WebSiteName parameter specifies the name of the Internet Information Services (IIS) Web site under which to create the virtual directory.

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.

The New-OABVirtualDirectory cmdlet configures a Client Access server as a Web distribution point for an OAB and creates the OAB virtual directory.

You have to manually create the file system folder on the server that hosts the OAB files.

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 "OAB virtual directory" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
