Exchange Online PowerShell Module V2 (EXOPMv2) 28:20• FOLLOW-UP FROM LAST WEEK: Connect-ExchangeOnline DOES support prefixing, there is a command switch. It was just not documented on the official page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/powershell-v2-module/connect-exchangeonline?view=exchange-ps
• However, note that the new get-EXO commands are NOT prefixed, regardless.
• Doesn't work in PowerShell 6 or 7, only 5.1 and below: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/exchange-team-blog/faster-and-more-reliable-exchange-online-management-using/ba-p/1198604
• "Microsoft says that they’re considering upgrading other cmdlets. However, they can’t yet say what cmdlets are suitable candidates for upgrade or when more might be available."
• New cmdlets still seem to perform slower than their old counterparts when measured with measure-command at small scale, but does better at large scale for get-mailbox at least
• "The initial slowdown is because the cmdlets support pagination, so when a cmdlet begins to process a set of objects, it sorts the objects to allow the cmdlet to resume processing from a retry point should the need occur. During this period, the cmdlet is also evaluated against RBAC. I call this the “warm up” phase, and once it’s finished, access to the objects is fast and robust."
