Use the Get-EdgeSubscription cmdlet to retrieve information about Edge Subscriptions in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization.

Get-EdgeSubscription [-Identity <TransportServerIdParameter>] [-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.




The Identity parameter specifies the name of the Edge Transport server for which you want to retrieve Edge Subscription information. The identity is expressed as the host name of the Edge Transport server. If no identity is specified, all Edge Subscriptions are returned.

Run the Get-EdgeSubscription cmdlet on a computer running Microsoft Exchange 2010 in the organization. This cmdlet retrieves the list of Edge Subscriptions. Each computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed and that's subscribed to the Exchange organization has a separate Edge Subscription. You can use this cmdlet to view the Edge Subscription information for a specific Edge Transport server. You can also use this cmdlet to view the Edge Subscription information for all Edge Transport servers subscribed to Active Directory sites.

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 "EdgeSync" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

This example retrieves detailed Edge Subscription information for all Edge Transport servers subscribed to your Exchange organization.
