Use the Get-UMServer cmdlet to display the properties for a single Unified Messaging (UM) server or to display a list of servers enabled for Unified Messaging.

Get-UMServer [-Identity <UMServerIdParameter>] [-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 Identity parameter specifies the name of the Unified Messaging server. If this parameter isn't supplied, a list of all Unified Messaging servers is returned.

The Get-UMServer cmdlet retrieves the properties for a Unified Messaging server or returns a list of available UM servers from Active Directory. When the cmdlet is used for a single UM server, it returns the UM server properties including MaxCalls, MaxFaxCalls, and UMDialPlans. The properties and their values for the UM server are stored in the Unified Messaging section of the Exchange Server configuration object in Active Directory.

The ExchangeVersion attribute that's returned is the minimum version of Microsoft Exchange you can use to manage the returned object. This attribute isn't the same as the version of Microsoft Exchange that's displayed in the Exchange Management Console when you select Server Configuration.

After this task is completed, you can view the parameters and values for a single Unified Messaging server or a list of all of the Unified Messaging servers in Active Directory.

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 server" entry in the Unified Messaging Permissions topic.
