Use the Get-IntraOrganizationConfiguration cmdlet to view the component settings of a hybrid Exchange deployment.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Get-IntraOrganizationConfiguration [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-OrganizationGuid <OnPremisesOrganizationIdParameter>]

This example returns the settings of the intra-organization configuration.


A hybrid Exchange deployment results in one logical organization made up of a number of physical Exchange instances. Hybrid Exchange environments contain more than one Exchange instance and support topologies like two on-premises Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 forests in an organization, an Exchange 2013 on-premises organization and an Exchange Online organization, or two Exchange Online organizations.

Hybrid environments are enabled by Intra-Organization connectors. The connectors can be created and managed by cmdlets like New-IntraOrganizationConnector, but we strongly recommend that you use the Hybrid Configuration wizard when configuring a hybrid deployment with an Exchange Online organization.

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 "Intra-Organization connectors" entry in the Exchange and Shell infrastructure permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.




This parameter isn't available in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The OrganizationGuid parameter specifies the on-premises organization in a hybrid deployment that has multiple on-premises organizations defined. If you don't use the OrganizationGuid parameter for these types of hybrid deployments, the Get-IntraOrganizationConfiguration cmdlet will generate errors. To view the on-premises organization GUID values that are required for this parameter, use the Get-OnPremisesOrganization cmdlet.
