Use the Remove-OrganizationRelationship cmdlet to remove the organization relationship with an external organization.

Remove-OrganizationRelationship -Identity <OrganizationRelationshipIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the organization relationship that you want to remove. You can use one of the following values:

  • Canonical name
  • GUID
  • Name




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.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




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.

The Remove-OrganizationRelationship cmdlet removes the organization relationship objects. To stop sharing information without removing the organization relationship objects, disable the organization relationship by using the Set-OrganizationRelationship cmdlet.

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 "Organization relationships" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

Error Description
