Description

The Set-ExchangeServer cmdlet sets generic Exchange attributes in Active Directory for a specified computer. You can only use this task on one server at a time. If you want to bulk manage your servers running Microsoft Exchange, add this task to a script.

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.

Examples

Example 1

Set-ExchangeServer -Identity TestServer.Contoso.com -ErrorReportingEnabled $false

This example disables error reporting on the specified server.

Example 2

Set-ExchangeServer -Identity 'SERVER01' -CustomerFeedbackEnabled $true

This example enrolls an Exchange server into the Customer Experience Improvement Program. In this example, the server name is SERVER01.

Example 3

Set-ExchangeServer -Identity 'SERVER01' -CustomerFeedbackEnabled $false

This example removes an Exchange server from the Customer Experience Improvement Program. In this example, the server name is SERVER01.

Parameters

-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.

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019
-CustomerFeedbackEnabled

The CustomerFeedbackEnabled parameter specifies whether the Exchange server is enrolled in the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP). The CEIP collects anonymous information about how you use Exchange and problems that you might encounter. If you decide not to participate in the CEIP, the servers are opted-out automatically.

Type:$true | $false
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019
-DomainController

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.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.

Type:Fqdn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019

The ErrorReportingEnabled parameter specifies whether error reporting is enabled.

Type:$true | $false
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019
-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the Exchange server that you want to modify. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Exchange Legacy DN

Type:ServerIdParameter
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019
-InternetWebProxy

The InternetWebProxy parameter specifies the web proxy server that the Exchange server uses to reach the internet. A valid value for this parameter is the URL of the web proxy server.

In Exchange 2016 or later, to configure a list of servers that bypass the web proxy server and connect to the internet directly, use the InternetWebProxyBypassList parameter.

Type:Uri
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019
-InternetWebProxyBypassList

The InternetWebProxyBypassList parameter specifies a list of servers that bypass the web proxy server specified by the InternetWebProxy parameter. You identify the servers by their FQDN (for example, server01.contoso.com).

To enter multiple values and overwrite any existing FQDN entries, use the following syntax: <FQDN1>,<FQDN2>,...<FQDNX>.

To add or remove one or more values without affecting any existing FQDN entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<FQDN1>","<FQDN2>"...; Remove="<FQDN1>","<FQDN>"...}.

The maximum number of servers you can enter with this parameter is 100.
