New-DeliveryAgentConnector

Exchange 2010
[This topic is in progress.]  

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

Topic Last Modified: 2011-05-05

The New-DeliveryAgentConnector cmdlet creates a delivery agent connector in your organization.


New-DeliveryAgentConnector -Name <String> -AddressSpaces <MultiValuedProperty> -DeliveryProtocol <String> [-Comment <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Enabled <$true | $false>] [-IsScopedConnector <$true | $false>] [-MaxConcurrentConnections <Int32>] [-MaxMessageSize <Unlimited>] [-MaxMessagesPerConnection <Int32>] [-SourceTransportServers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Delivery agent connectors are used to route messages addressed to foreign systems that don't utilize the SMTP protocol. When a message is routed to a delivery agent connector, the associated delivery agent performs the content conversion and message delivery. Delivery agent connectors allow queue management of foreign connectors, thereby eliminating the need for storing messages on the file system in the Drop and Pickup directories. For more information, see Understanding Delivery Agents.

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 "Delivery agent connectors" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

AddressSpaces

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The AddessSpaces parameter specifies the domain names for which this delivery agent connector is responsible. The syntax for entering an address space is as follows: <AddressSpaceType>:<AddressSpace>;<AddressSpaceCost>. You must enclose each address space in quotation marks (").

DeliveryProtocol

Required

System.String

The DeliveryProtocol parameter specifies the communication protocol that determines which delivery agents are responsible for servicing the connector.

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the name of this delivery agent connector. The value for the Name parameter can't exceed 64 characters.

Comment

Optional

System.String

The Comment parameter specifies an optional comment. This parameter is used to add administrative comments about the delivery agent connector.

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.

Enabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The Enabled parameter specifies whether the delivery agent connector is enabled.

The default value is $true.

IsScopedConnector

Optional

System.Boolean

The IsScopedConnector parameter specifies the availability of the connector to other Hub Transport servers. If the value of this parameter is $false, the connector can be used by all Hub Transport servers in your organization. If the value of this parameter is $true, the connector can only be used by Hub Transport servers in the same Active Directory site. The default value is $false.

MaxConcurrentConnections

Optional

System.Int32

The MaxConcurrentConnections parameter specifies the maximum number of concurrent connections this connector accepts from a specific IP address. The default value is 5.

MaxMessageSize

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The MaxMessageSize parameter specifies the maximum size of a message that's allowed to pass through this connector. When you enter a value, qualify the value with one of the following units:

  • B (bytes)

  • KB (kilobytes)

  • MB (megabytes)

  • GB (gigabytes)

Unqualified values are treated as bytes. The valid input range for this parameter is from 65536 through 2147483647 bytes. The default value is unlimited.

MaxMessagesPerConnection

Optional

System.Int32

The MaxMessagesPerConnection parameter specifies the maximum number of messages this connector accepts per connection. The connector terminates the connection after this limit is reached, and the sending server has to initiate a new connection to send more messages. The default value is 20.

SourceTransportServers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The SourceTransportServers parameter specifies the list of Hub Transport servers that host this connector. You can specify more than one Hub Transport server by separating their names with commas.

By default, only the local server on which the command is executed is added to this parameter.

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.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example creates a delivery agent connector Contoso X.400 Connector with the following configuration:

  • The delivery agent connector is hosted on the following Hub Transport servers:

    • Hub01

    • Hub02

    • Hub05

  • The delivery agent connector is designed to handle X.400 connections to a company called Contoso that uses the carrier Fabrikam.

  • The address space for the connector is c=US;a=Fabrikam;p=Contoso.

New-DeliveryAgentConnector -Name "Contoso X.400 Connector" -AddressSpaces "X400:c=US;a=Fabrikam;p=Contoso;1" -DeliveryProtocol "X.400" -SourceTransportServers Hub01,Hub02,Hub05
