#sharepoint 2010 powershell get central admin url
Get-SPWebApplication -includecentraladministration | where `
  {$_.IsAdministrationWebApplication} | Select -ExpandProperty URL

One thought on “Get SharePoint Central Admin URL in PowerShell

  • Do you know if this works with SharePoint 2016? I ran it in Powershell and Powershell ISE on one of the web servers, but it returned errors. Can I run it on any server in the farms to get the URL or does it have to be on the one hosting CA? Thank you
