This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to delete a Unified Messaging (UM) IP gateway. When you delete the UM IP gateway, UM servers will no longer be able to accept incoming calls from the IP gateway that is associated with the UM IP gateway.

Deleting a UM IP gateway should be performed only by an administrator who fully understands the implications of disabling communication with an IP gateway or a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-enabled IP Private Branch eXchange (PBX).

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization 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.


To use the Exchange Management Console to delete a UM IP gateway

  1. In the console tree of the Exchange Management Console, expand the Microsoft Exchange node, expand the Organizational Configuration node, and then click the Unified Messaging node.

  2. In the result pane, click the UM IP Gateways tab.

  3. In the work pane, click to highlight the UM IP Gateway that you want to delete.

  4. In the action pane, click Remove.

  5. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.

To use the Exchange Management Shell to delete a UM IP gateway

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Remove-UMIPGateway -Identity MyIPGateway

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Remove-UMIPGateway.
