Exchange Server 2010 : Troubleshooting Federated Delegation (part 2) - Troubleshooting Organization Relationships

12/14/2010 11:32:55 AM

2. Troubleshooting Organization Relationships

The Get-FederationInformation cmdlet is arguably the most important tool in troubleshooting existing organization relationships as well as establishing new ones. This cmdlet returns information on a specified domain by querying the MFG, including federated domain names, target URLs, and the accessibility of those URLs. This output can be used for troubleshooting as well as for establishing new organization relationships by piping the output to the New-OrganizationRelationship cmdlet. The Get-FederationInformation cmdlet is also invoked in the New Organization Relationship Wizard when you select the Automatically Discover Configuration Information option on the External Organization page of the wizard, as shown in Figure 2.

The information retrieved by this cmdlet can tell you if there are issues with the specified domain; if no information is returned, check with the administrators of the external organization to verify that they have a federated trust in place and if they have published Autodiscover to the Internet. You may need to specify the external organization's information manually to establish the organization relationship, or they may not have established a federation trust yet—or they may have issues with the certificates for their existing federation trust.

The Get-OrganizationRelationship cmdlet is used to retrieve details on organization relationships, including free/busy access level, the internal security distribution group whose free/busy is accessible through this organization relationship, the application URI and Autodiscover endpoint of the external organization, and the create and last modified dates of the organization relationship. A subset of this information is also available through the properties of the organization relationship in the EMC, as shown in Figure 3.

You can also get more information on why an organization relationship is failing by using the Get-FederationInformation cmdlet with the -verbose switch:

Get-FedInfo -DomainName fabrikam.com -Verbose

To get extended information in the event an exception occurs you can run the following script:

$result= Get-FedInfo -DomainName fabrikam.com
$result | fl - Force
