Configure Mailbox Server Properties

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

To configure the Mailbox servers in your organization, you can either use the Mailbox node in the Exchange Management Console (EMC) or the Set-MailboxServer cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox server configuration" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, select the forest you want, and then navigate to Server Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, select the server you want to configure.
  3. In the action pane, under the server name, click Properties.
  4. On the General tab, you can view general information about the server:
    • Version   This field displays the version of Exchange installed on the server.
    • Edition   This field displays the Exchange Server edition. The edition is either Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition.
    • Role(s)   This field displays the Exchange server roles installed on the server.
    • Product ID   This field displays the product ID for the Exchange server. If you haven't yet entered the product key for the server, the product ID displayed is Unlicensed. To license an unlicensed version of Exchange, see Enter Product Key.
    • Modified   This field displays the last date and time that a configuration change was made on this server.
  5. On the System Settings tab, view the domain controller servers and global catalog servers. You can also enable an error reporting feature:
    • Domain controller servers being used by Exchange   This read-only box displays a list of domain controller servers used by the Exchange server.
      Aa998273.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
      This box isn't available on Edge Transport servers.
    • Global catalog servers being used by Exchange   This read-only box displays a list of global catalog servers used by the Exchange server.
      Aa998273.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
      This box isn't available on Edge Transport servers.
    • Automatically send fatal service error report to Microsoft   Select this check box if you want to enable the error reporting feature and automatically send an error report to Microsoft in the event of a fatal error.
      If you enable the error reporting feature, information about fatal service errors is sent to Microsoft over encrypted channels. The information is used to improve Microsoft products.
      When this feature is enabled and the issue reported has a known solution, the server receives feedback from Microsoft. This feedback contains a link to information that may help resolve the problem.
  6. On the Customer Feedback Options tab, you can enroll the selected server into the Customer Experience Improvement Program. For more information, see Opt-in or Opt-out of the Customer Experience Improvement Program.
  7. On the Messaging Records Management tab, configure the schedule for the Managed Folder Assistant. The Managed Folder Assistant is an Exchange Mailbox Assistant that places the managed folders that you have created into users' mailboxes and applies managed content settings to managed folders. When the Managed Folder Assistant is running, it processes all the mailboxes on a server. If the Managed Folder Assistant doesn't finish processing the mailboxes on the server in the time that you specified, it automatically resumes processing where it left off the next time it runs. There is one Managed Folder Assistant for each server. To learn more, see Schedule the Managed Folder Assistant.
    • Schedule the Managed Folder Assistant   Use this box to schedule the Managed Folder Assistant or to prevent it from running. The following options are available:
      Use Custom Schedule   Select this option to configure the Managed Folder Assistant to run at specified times. If you select UseCustom Schedule, you must also click Customize to set a schedule. There is no default schedule.
      Never Run   Select this option to prevent the Managed Folder Assistant from running.
    • Customize   Click this button to open the Schedule dialog box and set a schedule for the Managed Folder Assistant. To set the schedule, click the time grid in the dialog box. The Managed Folder Assistant runs during the time slots that you select, which are marked in blue. You can select the same time slot every day by clicking a column header for a specific time slot. You can select an entire day by clicking the name of that day.
      The default time slot for the grid is one hour. For finer control, you can change the schedule grid to 15 minute intervals by clicking 15 Minutes. Scheduled intervals must be at least 15 minutes apart.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox server configuration" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example sets the server override list to HubServer01, HubServer02, and HubServer03

Set-MailboxServer -Identity Server1 -SubmissionServerOverrideList HubServer01,HubServer02,HubServer03

This example sets the maximum size of the messaging records management (MRM) log directory to 1 GB.

Set-MailboxServer -Identity Exchange01 -LogDirectorySizeLimitForManagedFolders "1 GB"

This example sets the maximum size of the MRM log files to 20 MB.

Set-MailboxServer -Identity Exchange01 -LogFileSizeLimitForManagedFolders "20 MB"

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-MailboxServer.
