Exchange 2010

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-16

Use the Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory cmdlet to retrieve the settings for the Autodiscover virtual directory on a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 that has the Client Access server role installed.

Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory [-Identity <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter>] [-ADPropertiesOnly <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory -Server <ServerIdParameter> [-ADPropertiesOnly <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

You can run the Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory cmdlet on a local server or run it remotely if the server name is specified in the Identity or Server parameters. You can also run this cmdlet without parameters to retrieve the configuration settings from all Autodiscover virtual directories on all Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites located on the Client Access servers in the organization.

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 "Autodiscover service virtual directory settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Server parameter specifies the name or GUID of the Client Access server that hosts the virtual directories that you want to display.




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 virtual directory and Web site for the Autodiscover virtual directory.

This example returns settings for the Autodiscover virtual directory located on the Client Access server CAS01 by querying Active Directory using the domain controller specified.
