   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

If you aren't a member or owner of the site mailbox that you want to view the diagnostics information for, you must use the BypassOwnerCheck parameter when running this cmdlet. If you aren't a member or owner of the site mailbox and you run this cmdlet without using the BypassOwnerCheck parameter, the command fails with an "object not found" error.

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).

Required Parameters

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the site mailbox. You can use the following values:

  • Alias

  • Display name

  • Domain\Account

  • SMTP address

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Object GUID

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

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

Optional Parameters

-BypassOwnerCheck

The BypassOwnerCheck parameter is used when the account that's running the command isn't a member or owner of the site mailbox. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

If you run the command without this parameter and you aren't a member or owner of the site mailbox, then the command will fail.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-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.

Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
