New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-27

Use the New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory cmdlet to create a Windows PowerShell virtual directory in Internet Information Services (IIS).

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory -Name <String> [-AppPoolId <String>] [-BasicAuthentication <$true | $false>] [-CertificateAuthentication <$true | $false>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ExternalUrl <Uri>] [-InternalUrl <Uri>] [-LimitMaximumMemory <$true | $false>] [-Path <String>] [-RequireSSL <$true | $false>] [-Role <ClientAccess | Mailbox>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WebSiteName <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WindowsAuthentication <$true | $false>]

This example creates a Windows PowerShell virtual directory and configures it to accept only certificate authentication.

New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory -Name "Contoso Certificates Required" -BasicAuthentication $false -WindowsAuthentication $false -CertificateAuthentication $true

Although it's possible to create a Windows PowerShell virtual directory, we recommend that you only do so at the request of Microsoft Customer Service and Support.

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 "PowerShell virtual directories" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.
