Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.AddressListIdParameter

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID, distinguished name or address list name that represents a specific address list. You can also include the path by using the format Path\AddressListName.

You can omit the parameter label Identity so that only the address list name or GUID is supplied.

Target

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.AddressListIdParameter

This parameter specifies the path to the parent address list where you want to move this address list.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter 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 parameter.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter specifies the domain controller to use to make the modification of the address list path in Active Directory.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, 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 parameter.

 

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

The following example shows how to move the address list with GUID c3fffd8e-026b-41b9-88c4-8c21697ac8ac to a new location under the parent address list \All Users\Sales\building4.

Move-AddressList -Identity c3fffd8e-026b-41b9-88c4-8c21697ac8ac -Target "\All Users\Sales\building4"

Use the Get-AddressList command, piped to Format-List, to get the GUID, distinguished name, or path and name of an existing address list. Or use Get-AddressList to get a specific existing address list, and then pipe the output directly to Move-AddressList.
