Use the Remove-IPBlockListProvider cmdlet to remove the configuration information for a specific IP Block List provider configuration on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role or the Hub Transport server role installed.

Remove-IPBlockListProvider -Identity <IPBlockListProviderIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The IP Block List provider is used by the Connection Filter agent.

To run the Remove-IPBlockListProvider cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

To run the Remove-IPBlockListProvider cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter can take a string value, which is the Name value, or the GUID.




The Confirm parameter 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 parameter.




To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command. The DomainController parameter is not supported on computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed. The Edge Transport server role writes only to the local ADAM instance.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, 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 parameter.


Error Description


The following code example shows how to use the Remove-IPBlockListProvider cmdlet to remove an IP Block List Provider service, which is named Example.com.

Remove-IPBlockListProvider -Identity Example.com
