Description

Although it's possible to create a Windows PowerShell virtual directory, we recommend that you only do so at the request of Microsoft Customer Service and Support.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory -Name "Contoso Certificates Required" -BasicAuthentication $false -WindowsAuthentication $false -CertificateAuthentication $true

This example creates a Windows PowerShell virtual directory and configures it to accept only certificate authentication.

Required Parameters

-Name

The Name parameter specifies the name of the new PowerShell virtual directory. The name you provide will have the name of the website it's created under appended to it. If the name you provide contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks (").

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-BasicAuthentication

The BasicAuthentication parameter specifies whether Basic authentication is enabled on the PowerShell virtual directory. The valid values are $true and $false. The default value is $true.

Type:$true | $false
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Confirm

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.

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
