Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Add-FederatedDomain cmdlet to configure a secondary domain with the federated organization identifier.

Dd351208.important(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifImportant:
The domains being added to the federation trust must exist as accepted domains in the Exchange organization.


Add-FederatedDomain [-Identity <OrganizationIdParameter>] -DomainName <SmtpDomain> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

DomainName

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpDomain

The DomainName parameter specifies the secondary domain to be configured.

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.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Identity parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

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 can add any registered Internet domain to the federated organization identifier. You must prove domain ownership by creating a TXT record in the DNS zone of each domain you add.

For more details, see Understanding Federation.

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 "Federation Trusts" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.

Error Description
