Get-TransportConfig [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

Detailed Description

The Get-TransportConfig cmdlet is used to display configuration information for e-mail transport settings that are applied across the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization when the cmdlet is run on a Hub Transport server. When this cmdlet is run on an Edge Transport server, only the transportation configuration settings for the local computer are shown.

To run the Get-TransportConfig cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrators role

To run the Get-TransportConfig cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.
