Use the Remove-EcpVirtualDirectory cmdlet to remove Exchange Control Panel virtual directories located in the Internet Information Services (IIS) Web site on a server running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

Remove-EcpVirtualDirectory -Identity <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name or GUID of an Exchange Control Panel virtual directory. The Identity parameter is represented as: ServerName\ECP (WebsiteName). Remote removal of an Exchange Control Panel virtual directory isn't supported. You must run this command from the local computer.




The Confirm switch 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 switch.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




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

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 Control Panel (ECP) virtual directory settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

Error Description
