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.

Parameter Required Type Description




The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.




Specifies the GUID or connector name that represents a specific Receive connector. You can also include the server name using the format ServerName\ConnectorName.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the connector name or GUID is supplied.




Specifies the name of the server to query when the command is run. Only Receive connectors configured on the server you specify are displayed.
