Exchange Back End website in 2013 Mailbox Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In exchange 2013, both CAS server and Mailbox server have two websites - Default Web Site and Exchange Back End. Can these built-in web site name change? I need to get the name of website Exchange Back End in exchange 2013 Mailbox server. How can I get it? Do you think I can write it hard-code?

    Thanks,

    M.

  • Hello Michael,

    You ought to be able to get the directories with the various Virtual Directory Cmdlets of the CAS PowerShell cmdlets

    Take note of the parameters available, if you want the Back Ends.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Fred,

    Thanks for your reply. That really helps. 

    Do you know what is the difference between switch ShowBackEndVirtualDirectories and ShowMailboxVirtualDirectories? The description look the same.

    Thanks,

    M.

  • Hello Michael,

    according to this cmdlet documentation, these switches determine which Server roles' (CAS or Mailbox) directories are returned. Since however for most Virtual Directories cmdlets it is recommended to only use them with official microsoft support in attendance, these switches might be more for in-depth trouble-shooting.

    Maybe just give those switches a try with a get- cmdlet, those never change a thing, so they should be safe to use (though I'd still run all unproofed cmdlets against a lab-environment first).

    Cheers,
    Fred
