This parameter hasn't been implemented.

AppPoolId

Optional

System.String

The AppPoolId parameter sets the IIS application pool in which Outlook Web App runs. We recommend that you leave this parameter at its default setting.

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.

ExtendedProtectionFlags

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

ExtendedProtectionSPNList

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

ExtendedProtectionTokenChecking

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.SystemConfiguration.ExtendedProtectionTokenCheckingMode

ExternalAuthenticationMethods

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The ExternalAuthenticationMethods parameter, a Services Discovery property setting, specifies the authentication methods supported on the Exchange server from outside the firewall.

Bb123752.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
This parameter hasn't been implemented; however, it can be set by using the Set-OwaVirtualDirectory cmdlet.

ExternalUrl

Optional

System.Uri

The ExternalUrl parameter specifies the host name to be used to connect to the Exchange server from outside the firewall. This setting is important when Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is used.

Bb123752.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
You can only configure this setting on Exchange virtual directories. The default Exchange virtual directory is /owa.

InternalUrl

Optional

System.Uri

The InternalUrl parameter specifies the host name to be used to connect to the Exchange server from inside the firewall. This setting is important when SSL is used.

You can only configure this setting on Exchange virtual directories. The default Exchange virtual directory is /owa.

Name

Optional

System.String

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

Path

Optional

System.String

The Path parameter sets the file system path of the virtual directory. This parameter should be used with care and only when you must use a different file system path than the default.

WebSiteName

Optional

System.String

The WebSiteName parameter specifies the name of the IIS Web site under which the Outlook Web App virtual directory is created.

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.

By default, when Exchange is installed, the Outlook Web App virtual directory owa is created in the default IIS Web site on the local server running Exchange. The New-OwaVirtualDirectory cmdlet must be run on the Exchange server hosting the Client Access server role on which you want to host the new virtual directory.

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 "Outlook Web App virtual directories" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

 

This example creates the Outlook Web App virtual directory in an IIS Web site on the local Exchange server, which isn't a default Web site.
