Use the Get-TransportServer cmdlet to view the transport configuration information for computers that have the Hub Transport server role or the Edge Transport server role installed.

Get-TransportServer [-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 server from which to retrieve the transport configuration information. When you use this parameter on a Hub Transport server, the parameter returns the transport configuration of the specified server. You can't use this parameter when you run the command on an Edge Transport server. You can omit the Identity parameter label.

The Get-TransportServer cmdlet displays configuration information for all transport-related parameters on a Hub Transport server or an Edge Transport server.

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 "Hub Transport server" or "Edge Transport server" entries in the Transport Permissions topic.

This example provides different results depending on the server role on which it's run. When you run this command on an Edge Transport server, it provides a configuration summary for the local server. Otherwise, it displays a list of all Hub Transport servers in your organization.


This example retrieves the detailed transport configuration information for the Hub Transport server Hub1.
