Use the Get-SendConnector cmdlet to view the configuration information for a Send connector on a computer that has the Hub Transport server role or the Edge Transport server role installed.


Get-SendConnector [-Identity <SendConnectorIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]


Parameter Required Type Description




To specify the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter on the command. The DomainController parameter is not supported on computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed. The Edge Transport server role writes and reads only to the local Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) instance.




The Identity parameter is the administrator-supplied name, or the system-generated GUID, of the connector. You can omit the Identity parameter label so that only the connector name or GUID is supplied. You can also include the server name by using the format ServerName\ConnectorName.

Detailed Description

The Get-SendConnector cmdlet displays the configuration information for a Send connector. No parameters are required. Running the cmdlet without parameters retrieves the configuration information for all Send connectors.

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

  • Exchange View-Only Administrators role

To run the Get-SendConnector 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.

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


Return Types


Error Description




The following code examples shows three commands that use the Get-SendConnector cmdlet.

The first example displays a summary list of all Send connectors on all the Hub Transport servers or the local Edge Transport server on which the command is run.

The second example shows how to view the detailed configuration of a specific Send connector by piping the results of the Get-SendConnector cmdlet to the Format-List cmdlet.

The third example shows the same detailed configuration information as the second example, but omits the Identity parameter label.
