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.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Server parameter specifies which server to query when returning a list of Windows PowerShell virtual directories. You can't use the Server parameter with the Identity parameter.




The ADPropertiesOnly switch specifies whether to return only the properties about the virtual directory stored in Active Directory. The properties stored in the Internet Information Services (IIS) metabase aren't returned.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The Identity parameter specifies the name of the Windows PowerShell virtual directory to retrieve. If the virtual directory contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks ("). You can't use the Identity parameter with the Server parameter.
