I am trying to set-up a multi tenant exchange 2013 environment. Currently we have the 2013 environment in production and have a few companies using it. The drawback however is that each company can see each others addresses due to the single GAL.

I have read, to alleviate this i must set up multi tenancy following the instructions here > https://www.geekandi.com/2013/08/02/exchange-2013-multi-tenancy-step-by-step/

I am stuck at the part where I create a New-AcceptedDomain (see error below)

PS C:> New-AcceptedDomain -Name "New Tenant 1" -DomainName test.exchange -DomainType:Authoritative New-AcceptedDomain : The term 'New-AcceptedDomain' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, >function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path >is correct and try again. At line:1 char:1 + New-AcceptedDomain -Name "New Tenant 1" -DomainName test.exchange -DomainType:Au ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (New-AcceptedDomain:String) [],CommandNotFoundException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

I have attempted to run this shell command on the MB Svr, CA Svr and the AD svr!

Any help would be greatly appreciated


That cmdlet is part of the Exchange 2013 Management Shell. You need to be in the Exchange Management Shell itself, not a separate PowerShell, to run it.

  • No worries, that trips up most Windows guys too. It's a weird design choice that doesn't seem to have any logical rationale. – Hyppy Dec 8 '14 at 16:57
