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 "Exchange server configuration settings" entry in the Exchange infrastructure and PowerShell permissions topic.

You can specify either the Server or Identity parameter, but not both.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Server parameter specifies the server for which you want to review event categories and log levels.




The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.




The Identity parameter specifies the name of the event category and log level to display.
