Get-ExchangeServer

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19

Use the Get-ExchangeServer cmdlet to obtain the attributes of a specified server. If a server isn't specified, the cmdlet obtains the attributes of all the servers in the Exchange organization.

noteNote:
When you run the Get-ExchangeServer cmdlet with no parameters, it returns the attributes of all the servers in the Exchange organization. To return specific server properties (including domain controller information) where the Get-ExchangeServer cmdlet has to contact servers directly or perform a complex or slow calculation, make sure you use the Status parameter.


Get-ExchangeServer [-Identity <ServerIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Status <SwitchParameter>]


Get-ExchangeServer -Domain <Fqdn> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Status <SwitchParameter>]

To view all the Exchange server attributes that this cmdlet returns, you must pipe the command to the Format-List cmdlet.

The ExchangeVersion attribute returned is the minimum version of Microsoft Exchange that you can use to manage the returned object. This attribute isn't the same as the version of Exchange displayed in the Exchange Management Console when you select Server Configuration.

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 "Shell Infrastructure Permissions" section in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.
