Exchange external and internal URI's

Found this issue when I ran the commands: (which I found at the article link below) Get-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -InternalURL Get-OABVirtualDirectory -InternalURL "These all failed with could not find domain controller" Playing wit the command I found that these commands did work and gave me the exact output I was looking for: Get-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-ClientAccessServer |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-ECPVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-OABVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-OWAVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Get-WebservicesVirtualDirectory |fl server,internalurl,externalurl Hope this helps!

Exchange 2010 SP1 or SP2 trouble with: The virtual directory 'PowerShell' already exists

Written by // Charles Arconi Categories // Exchange Server

Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 & SP2

Issue:

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();

$vdirName = "PowerShell";

$InternalPowerShellUrl="http://" + $RoleFqdnOrName + "/powershell";

new-PowerShellVirtualDirectory $vdirName -InternalUrl $InternalPowerS

ellUrl -DomainController $RoleDomainController -BasicAuthentication:$false -Win

owsAuthentication:$false -RequireSSL:$false;

" was run: "The virtual directory 'PowerShell' already exists under 'US

LTEXMB01.epri.com/Default Web Site'.

Parameter name: VirtualDirectoryName".

 

This typically occurs after trying to fix an SP2 or SP1 install/update that went wrong.
