Use the Remove-RoutingGroupConnector cmdlet to remove a routing group connector between a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 routing group and an Exchange Server 2003 routing group.


Remove-RoutingGroupConnector -Identity <RoutingGroupConnectorIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Detailed Description

A routing group connector is used to send and receive messages between computers running Exchange 2010 that have the Hub Transport server role installed and Exchange 2003 bridgehead servers when the organization is running more than one version of Exchange.

The Exchange 2003 servers used as source servers for the specified routing group connector are automatically removed from the ExchangeLegacyInterop universal security group.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you.

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name or GUID of the routing group connector. The name is expressed as [[Administrative Group Name\]Routing Group Name\]Routing Group Connector Name.




The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
