The Dump-ProvisioningCache cmdlet is for diagnostic purposes only and is rarely used. Exchange administrators or Microsoft support personnel may need to run this cmdlet to troubleshoot problems resulting from incorrect links or properties stamped on newly provisioned recipients, which can be caused by stale data in the provisioning cache.

The Dump-ProvisioningCache cmdlet displays a list of the Windows PowerShell provisioning cache keys. Use the value of these cache keys with the Reset-ProvisioningCache cmdlet to reset provisioning cache data.

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.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Application parameter specifies the specific administrative application to reset the provisioning cache for. You can use the following values:

  • Powershell

  • Powershell-LiveId

  • Powershell-Proxy

  • PowershellLiveId-Proxy

  • Ecp

  • Psws




The GlobalCache switch specifies that all cache keys are cleared.




The Server parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the server that the application you want to reset is running on.




The CacheKeys parameter specifies the value for the cache key that you want to clear. The format for the values should contain 32 digits separated by four dashes: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

Use the Dump-ProvisioningCache cmdlet to return a list of cache keys.




The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.




The CurrentOrganization switch specifies that the provision cache is reset for this organization.




The Organizations parameter specifies the organizations that the provisioning cache will be reset. This parameter is used in multi-tenant deployments.




The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
