Get-MapiVirtualDirectory

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2016.

Use the Get-MapiVirtualDirectory cmdlet to view Message Application Programming Interface (MAPI) virtual directories that are used in Internet Information Services (IIS) on Microsoft Exchange servers. A MAPI virtual directory is used by supported versions of Microsoft Outlook to connect to mailboxes by using the MAPIHTTP protocol.

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

Get-MapiVirtualDirectory [-Identity <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>

Get-MapiVirtualDirectory -Server <ServerIdParameter> <COMMON PARAMETERS>

COMMON PARAMETERS: [-ADPropertiesOnly <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

This example returns a summary list of the MAPI virtual directories on the server named ContosoMail.

Get-MapiVirtualDirectory -Server ContosoMail

These examples return detailed information for the MAPI virtual directory named "mapi (Default Web Site)" on the server named ContosoMail. All three commands do the same thing.

Get-MapiVirtualDirectory -Identity "ContosoMail\mapi (Default Web Site)" | Format-List
Get-MapiVirtualDirectory "ContosoMail\mapi (Default Web Site)" | Format-List
Get-MapiVirtualDirectory ContosoMai\mapi* | Format-List

This example returns a summary list of all MAPI virtual directories in the client access services on all Mailbox servers in the organization.

Parameter Required Type Description

Server

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the Exchange server that hosts the virtual directory. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • ExchangeLegacyDN

You can't use the Server and Identity parameters in the same command.

ADPropertiesOnly

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The ADPropertiesOnly switch specifies whether to return only the properties about the virtual directory stored in Active Directory. The properties stored in the Internet Information Services (IIS) metabase aren't returned.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

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.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.VirtualDirectoryIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the MAPI virtual directory that you want to view.

You can use any value that uniquely identifies the virtual directory. For example:

  • Name or <Server>\Name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • GUID

The Name value uses the syntax "<VirtualDirectoryName> (<WebsiteName>)" from the properties of the virtual directory. You can specify the wildcard character (*) instead of the default website by using the syntax <VirtualDirectoryName>*.

You can't use the Identity and Server parameters in the same command.
