The Remove-UMHuntGroup cmdlet removes and deletes an existing Unified Messaging (UM) hunt group.

Remove-UMHuntGroup -Identity <UMHuntGroupIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Remove-UMHuntGroup cmdlet deletes an existing UM hunt group from the Active Directory directory service. When the Remove-UMHuntGroup cmdlet is used, the UM hunt group is removed from the UM IP gateway and then deleted from Active Directory. If the operation leaves the UM IP gateway without any remaining configured UM hunt groups, the IP gateway will be unable to handle or process UM calls.

To run the Remove-UMHuntGroup cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrator role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
