Export Send Connector Address Space

Posted on 2010-11-17
Last Modified: 2013-04-10
I have an Exchange 2007 organization and have a need to export the domains listed in a Send Connector out to a file.
When I tried to do this, they are listed with the '...' just as in the powershell.

I know this can probably be exported out of AD as well, but I am having difficutly in getting it accopmlished.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-SendConnector -id "send_connector_name" | export-csv c:\o
I have used variations of this command.  Using the above command provides the following output in the AddressSpaces column:

Ok - what happens if you just run the following:

Get-SendConnector | Select Name, @{Name=AddressSpaces;Expression={[string]::join(";", ($_.AddressSpaces))}}| Export-CSV c:\output.csv

Also - you're running the management shell as an administrator, yet?

No dice:
The term 'AddressSpaces' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, s
cript file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path w
as included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

Sorry - think I'm giving part of a script there and I'm not in front of an Exchange system to test.

Try just this for now:

Get-SendConnector -Identity "Send Connector Name" | ft -autosize -wrap property AddressSpaces

I ran this command (added a dash in front of Property) and received the on-screen output w/out error.

Get-SendConnector -Identity "US_to_UK_Send" | ft -autosize -wrap -property AddressSpaces

It did truncate after 5 lines...

Ok, here is what I did to solve this:
Followed this article to prevent the truncation of the lines:
COMMAND:  [PS] C:\>$FormatEnumerationLimit =-1
Ran this command:
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-SendConnector -Identity "connector_name" | ft -autosize -wrap -property AddressSpaces |out-file c:\output.txt

Thanks Tony1044 for getting me on the right path!

Sorry I couldn't respond sooner - I was on the road. Glad you resolved the truncation. Never been sure why MS choose to do it by default.

Glad you got the result you wanted and thank you for the points request.

$Sendcon= get-sendconnector <name>
$Sendcon.addressspaces | select domain | Export-CSV c:\output.csv
