This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to modify an existing transport agent on a computer that has the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Hub Transport server role or Edge Transport server role installed.

For more information about transport agents, see Overview of Transport Agents.

You cannot administer transport agents by using the Exchange Management Console. To administer transport agents, you must use the Exchange Management Shell. For more information about how to use the Exchange Management Shell, see Using the Exchange Management Shell.

Before You Begin

To run the Set-TransportAgent cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

To run the Set-TransportAgent cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

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


You can use the Exchange Management Shell to modify the priority of an existing transport agent by using the following syntax:

Copy Code
Set-TransportAgent <TransportAgentID> [-Priority <Priority>]

To use the Exchange Management Shell to modify an existing transport agent

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Set-TransportAgent "Antivirus for Exchange" -Priority 3
