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 "Public folders" entry in the Sharing and Collaboration Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.PublicFolderIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path using the format \TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

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

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.

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.

Recurse

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Recurse switch specifies whether all subfolders of the specified folder should be removed. If the Recurse switch isn't specified and the public folder has subfolders, the command doesn't run and an error message is returned.

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.
