Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Remove-GlobalAddressList cmdlet to remove an existing global address list (GAL).


Remove-GlobalAddressList -Identity <GlobalAddressListIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.GlobalAddressListIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the GUID, distinguished name (DN), or GAL name that represents a specific address list. You can also include the path by using the format Path\GlobalAddressListName.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the GAL name or GUID is supplied.

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.

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.

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 "Address lists" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
