Use the Get-NetworkConnectionInfo cmdlet to view the network configuration information for all network adapters configured on the local server.

Get-NetworkConnectionInfo [-Identity <ServerIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

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.




Use the Server parameter to specify the name of the server to query when the command is run.

This cmdlet retrieves the following configuration information for each network adapter configured on a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010:

  • Name   This field displays the name of the network adapter. This name indicates the manufacturer and model of the network adapter, or the administrator-specified name of the network adapter.
  • DnsServers   This field displays the Domain Name System (DNS) servers used by the network adapter. The server names are separated by commas.
  • IPAddresses   This field displays the IP addresses used by the network adapter. The IP addresses are separated by commas.
  • AdapterGuid   This field displays the GUID assigned to the network adapter by Microsoft Windows.
  • MacAddress   This field displays the media access control (MAC) address of the network adapter.

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 "Hub server" and "Edge server" entries in the Transport Permissions topic.

This example retrieves network configuration information for all network adapters on the server Hub01.
