Use the Get-UMHuntGroup cmdlet to display the properties and values for an existing Unified Messaging (UM) hunt group.

Get-UMHuntGroup [-Identity <UMHuntGroupIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-UMDialPlan <UMDialPlanIdParameter>]

The Get-UMHuntGroup cmdlet retrieves the properties for a single UM hunt group or a list of UM hunt groups. When you’re using the Get-UMHuntGroup cmdlet, you can’t enter only the name of the UM hunt group. You must also include the name of the UM IP gateway that’s associated with the UM hunt group. For example, Get-UMHuntGroup MyUMIPGateway\MyUMHuntGroup1.

After this task is completed, if the Identity parameter is specified, the properties for the UM hunt group are returned. If neither the Identity nor the UMDialPlan parameter is specified, all UM hunt groups in the Active Directory forest are returned.

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 "UM hunt groups" entry in the Unified Messaging Permissions topic.
