How to View the Properties of a Unified Messaging Hunt Group

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 will reach end of support on April 11, 2017. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.


Applies to: Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP3

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to view Unified Messaging (UM) hunt group properties. When you view the properties for a UM hunt group, you can view the properties associated with a single UM hunt group or all UM hunt groups associated with a single UM IP gateway. If neither parameter is specified, all UM hunt groups in the forest will be returned.


After a UM hunt group has been created, the settings that are configured cannot be changed. If you want to change a configuration setting such as the pilot identifier on a UM hunt group, you must delete the existing UM hunt group and create a new UM hunt group that has the correct settings.

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange View-Only Administrator role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm the following:

  • A UM dial plan has been created.

  • A UM IP gateway has been created.

  3. In the work pane, click the UM IP Gateways tab.

  4. On the UM IP Gateways tab, expand the UM IP Gateway object that contains the hunt group for which you want to review properties.

  5. In the work pane, review the configuration settings of the UM hunt group by reviewing the UM Dial Plans, Pilot Identifier, Address, and Status columns.
