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.

Type:VirtualDirectoryIdParameter

-ShowMailboxVirtualDirectories

The ShowMailboxVirtualDirectories switch shows information about backend virtual directories on Mailbox servers. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

By default, this cmdlet shows information about virtual directories in the Client Access services on Mailbox servers. Client connections are proxied from the Client Access services on Mailbox servers to the backend services on Mailbox servers. Clients don't connect directly to the backend services.

We recommend that you use this parameter only under the direction of Microsoft Customer Service and Support.
