Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-05

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the Export-AutoDiscoverConfig cmdlet to create or update a service connection point for an Autodiscover service pointer in a target Exchange forest on a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2013.

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

Export-AutoDiscoverConfig -TargetForestDomainController <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DeleteConfig <$true | $false>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-MultipleExchangeDeployments <$true | $false>] [-PreferredSourceFqdn <Fqdn>] [-SourceForestCredential <PSCredential>] [-TargetForestCredential <PSCredential>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates a service connection point object to connect to another Active Directory forest so that Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2007 clients can automatically connect to their mailbox without having to set up a profile.

Export-AutoDiscoverConfig -TargetForestDomainController targetForestName 

This example specifies that Exchange 2013 is deployed in more than one Active Directory forest while establishing an Autodiscover service connection point to the target domain controller in another Active Directory forest.

Export-AutoDiscoverConfig -TargetForestDomainController targetForestName -MultipleExchangeDeployments $true

The Autodiscover service connection point pointer resides in Active Directory and contains the names of the Exchange Web Services URLs.

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 configuration settings" entry in the Clients and mobile devices permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The TargetForestDomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that you want to export the Autodiscover configuration to.




The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.




The DeleteConfig parameter causes the command to delete your configuration settings on the service connection point object.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The MultipleExchangeDeployments parameter specifies whether multiple Exchange deployments exist. This setting should be set to $true only if Exchange 2013 is deployed in more than one Active Directory forest, and the forests are connected. If set to $true, the list of authoritative accepted domains for the source forest is written to the Autodiscover service connection point object. Microsoft Outlook 2010 and Office Outlook 2007 clients use this object to select the most appropriate forest to search for the Autodiscover service.




The PreferredSourceFqdn parameter specifies the FQDN of the Active Directory domain for the Autodiscover pointer service connection point object.




The SourceForestCredential parameter specifies the credentials to use when connecting to the source forest.




The TargetForestCredential parameter specifies the credentials to use to connect to the target forest.




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.
