Use the Update-PublicFolderMailbox cmdlet to update the hierarchy for public folders.

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

Update-PublicFolderMailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Update-PublicFolderMailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-FullSync <SwitchParameter>] [-InvokeSynchronizer <SwitchParameter>] [-SuppressStatus <SwitchParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example updates the public folder hierarchy on the public folder mailbox PF_marketing and suppresses the command's output.

Update-PublicFolderMailbox -Identity PF_marketing -SuppressStatus

This example updates all public folder mailboxes and suppresses the command's output.

Get-Mailbox -PublicFolder | Update-PublicFolderMailbox -SuppressStatus

This cmdlet only needs to be used if you want to manually invoke the hierarchy synchronizer and the mailbox assistant. Both these are invoked at least once every 24 hours for each public folder mailbox in the organization. The hierarchy synchronizer is invoked every 15 minutes if any users are logged on to a secondary mailbox through Microsoft Outlook or a Microsoft Exchange Web Services client.

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 "Public folders" entry in the Sharing and Collaboration Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the public folder mailbox. This parameter accepts the following values:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • Legacy Exchange DN

  • SMTP address

  • Alias

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.

FullSync

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The FullSync parameter specifies that you want to perform a full synchronization of the public folder mailbox.

InvokeSynchronizer

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The InvokeSynchronizer parameter can only be used on secondary hierarchy public folder mailboxes and triggers hierarchy synchronization from the primary public folder mailbox to the specified secondary public folder mailbox.

This parameter should only be used for troubleshooting purposes.

SuppressStatus

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The SuppressStatus parameter specifies that the output of this cmdlet is suppressed and that the command will run asynchronously in the background from the Exchange Management Shell. If you don't use this parameter in the command, the output will display status messages every 3 seconds for up to one minute. Until the minute passes, you can't use that instance of the Shell.

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.
