Use the Remove-RemoteDomain cmdlet to remove a remote domain. When you remove a remote domain, the remote domain object is deleted. Removing a remote domain doesn't disable mail flow to that domain.

For more information about how to configure the remote domain, see Set-RemoteDomain (RTM).


Remove-RemoteDomain -Identity <RemoteDomainIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>]


Parameter Required Type Description




Use this parameter to specify a string value for the remote domain. Enter either the GUID or the Name of the remote domain.




To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration information 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.

Detailed Description

To run the Remove-RemoteDomain cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • 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.
