Use the Get-RemoteDomain cmdlet to view the configuration information for the remote domains configured in your organization. You can view the remote domain configuration from inside the Exchange organization or from a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization.

Get-RemoteDomain [-Identity <RemoteDomainIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>]

Parameter Required Type Description




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory. The DomainController parameter isn't supported on the Edge Transport server role. The Edge Transport server role reads only from the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance.




The Identity parameter specifies a string value for the remote domain. Enter either the GUID or name of the remote domain.




The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

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 "Remote domains" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

This example returns all remote domains configured in the Active Directory forest in which you run the command.


This example returns the configuration for the remote domain Contoso.

Get-RemoteDomain -Identity Contoso

This example queries Active Directory for all remote domains and displays only those remote domains for which Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format (TNEF) encoding isn't used.

Get-RemoteDomain | Where {$_.TNEFEnabled -eq $false}
