Use the Disable-ContinuousReplicationHostName cmdlet to disable a Network Name and IP Address resource that was created using the Enable-ContinuousReplicationHostName cmdlet. These resources will be removed from their dedicated cluster group, and the cluster group will be deleted.


Disable-ContinuousReplicationHostName [-Identity <MailboxServerIdParameter>] -HostName <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Parameter Required Type Description




The HostName parameter specifies the network name that is being disabled on the local node.




The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.




The DomainController parameter is used to specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that will be used to retrieve data from the directory service.




The Identity parameter specifies the clustered mailbox server associated with the local node. The local node can be either an active or a passive node.




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

Detailed Description

To run the Disable-ContinuousReplicationHostName cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator and local Administrator rights on the cluster node. 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 cluster group for network name <Name> was not found.

This error occurs if the name specified by the HostName parameter does not exist. This error can also occur if there is more than one Network Name resource in the cluster group containing the continuous replication host name Network Name resource.

A resource with network name <Name> already exists in group <Group>.

This error indicates that a Network Name resource with the name specified by the HostName parameter already exists. You must use a unique value for the HostName parameter on each node.


The following example shows how to disable a continuous replication host name called NODE2NET for a clustered mailbox server named EXCLUS.
