New-EdgeSubscription

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-01-08

Use the New-EdgeSubscription cmdlet to export an Edge Subscription file from an Edge Transport server and to import the Edge Subscription file to a Mailbox server.

New-EdgeSubscription [-AccountExpiryDuration <TimeSpan>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-CreateInboundSendConnector <$true | $false>] [-CreateInternetSendConnector <$true | $false>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-FileData <Byte[]>] [-FileName <LongPath>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Site <AdSiteIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates the Edge Subscription file. It should be run on your Edge Transport server.

New-EdgeSubscription -FileName "c:\EdgeServerSubscription.xml"

This example imports the Edge Subscription file generated in EXAMPLE 1 to the Active Directory site Default-First-Site-Name. Importing the Edge Subscription file completes the Edge Subscription process. You must run this command on the Mailbox server.

The first command reads the data from the Edge Subscription file and stores it in a temporary variable as a byte-encoded data object. The second command completes the Edge subscription process.

[byte[]]$Temp = Get-Content -Path "C:\EdgeServerSubscription.xml" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0
New-EdgeSubscription -FileData $Temp -Site "Default-First-Site-Name"

This example also imports the Edge Subscription file generated in EXAMPLE 1 to the Active Directory site Default-First-Site-Name; however, the end result is accomplished in a single line of code. You must run this command on the Mailbox server.

New-EdgeSubscription -FileData ([byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path "C:\EdgeServerSubscription.xml" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0)) -Site "Default-First-Site-Name"

The Edge Transport server doesn't have access to Active Directory. All configuration and recipient information is stored in the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance. The New-EdgeSubscription cmdlet creates the Edge Subscription file that will be imported on a Mailbox server in the Active Directory site to which you want to subscribe this Edge Transport 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 "EdgeSync" entry in the Mail Flow Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

AccountExpiryDuration

Optional

System.TimeSpan

The AccountExpiryDuration parameter specifies how soon the bootstrap account created by this command will expire.

To specify a value, enter it as a time span: dd.hh:mm:ss where d = days, h = hours, m = minutes, and s = seconds.

The value for this parameter must be a minimum of 00:02:00 or 2 minutes.

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.

CreateInboundSendConnector

Optional

System.Boolean

The CreateInboundSendConnector parameter specifies whether to create the Send connector to connect the Edge Transport server and the Hub Transport servers. The default value is $true. The Send connector address space is set to "--", the smart hosts are set to "--", the Edge Transport server is set as the source server, and Domain Name System (DNS) routing is disabled. This parameter is only used when you run the command on the Hub Transport server.

CreateInternetSendConnector

Optional

System.Boolean

The CreateInternetSendConnector parameter specifies whether to create the Send connector to connect to the Internet. The default value is $true. The Send connector address space is set to all domains (*), the Edge Transport server is set as the source server, and DNS routing is enabled. This parameter is only used when you run the command on the Hub Transport server.

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.

FileData

Optional

System.Byte[]

The FileData parameter specifies the byte-encoded data object that contains the Edge Subscription file information.

For more information about the syntax required to use this parameter, see Exchange Management Shell Quick Reference for Exchange 2013.

You can only use this parameter when you're running this command on a Mailbox server.

FileName

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.LongPath

The FileName parameter specifies the full path of the Edge Subscription file.

You can only use this parameter when you're running this command on an Edge Transport server.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning or confirmation messages. This switch can be used when the task is run programmatically and prompting for administrative input is inappropriate. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.

This switch is useful when you use a script with the Edge Subscription command because it bypasses confirmation. Another scenario in which this switch is useful is when you have to subscribe an Edge Transport server again, and you want to overwrite the existing configuration information.

Site

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.AdSiteIdParameter

The Site parameter specifies the name of the Active Directory site that contains the Mailbox servers with which the Edge Transport servers are associated. This parameter is used and required only when you run the command on a Mailbox server.

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.
