This topic describes how to use the Exchange Management Shell to configure Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services and Windows file share integration for Microsoft Outlook Web Access in Exchange 2007. By default, these features are enabled.

To perform the following procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. In the Exchange Management Console, click Server Configuration, and then click Client Access.

  2. On the Outlook Web Access tab, select the virtual directory that you want to configure.

  3. To configure access through public connections, click the Public Computer File Access tab.

  4. To configure access through private connections, click the Private Computer File Access tab.

  5. Select the Windows File Shares check box to enable or disable access to Windows file shares.

  6. Select the Windows SharePoint Services check box to enable or disable access to document libraries on Windows SharePoint Services.

  7. Click OK to save your changes or click Cancel to discard them.

  1. Open the Exchange Management Shell and run the following command to enable or disable Windows file share access for public computers:

    Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "owa (default web site)" -UNCAccessonPublicComputersEnabled <$true|$false>
    

You can use the following parameters to enable or disable direct access to Windows SharePoint Services document libraries or Windows file shares:

  • UNCAccessOnPrivateComputersEnabled

  • UNCAccessonPublicComputersEnabled

  • WSSAccessOnPublicComputersEnabled

  • WSSAccessonPrivateComputersEnabled

  1. Open the Exchange Management Console.

  2. Locate Server Configuration/Client Access.

  3. On the Outlook Web Access tab, select the virtual directory that you want to configure.

  4. Click the Remote File Servers tab.

  5. Click Block to manage the list of servers to which you want to block access.

  6. Click Allow to manage the list of servers that can be accessed.

  7. Select the behavior for Unknown Servers by selecting Allow or Block from the list.

  8. Click Configure to manage the list of servers that you want to be handled as internal.

  9. Click OK to save your changes or click Cancel to discard them.

  1. Open the Exchange Management Shell and run the following command to manage the list of servers that are blocked:

    Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "owa (default web site)" -RemoteDocumentsBlockedServers <server name1, server name2, ...>
    
  2. Open the Exchange Management Shell and run the following command to allow or block access to documents on unknown servers. Use either <allow> or <block>.

    Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "owa (default web site)" -RemoteDocumentsActionforUnknownServers <allow/block>
    

You can use the following parameters to manage access to Windows SharePoint Services document libraries or Windows file shares:

  • RemoteDocumentsActionForUnknownServers

  • RemoteDocumentsAllowedServers

  • RemoteDocumentsBlockedServers

  • RemoteDocumentsInternalDomainSuffixList

noteNote:
By default, changes to these properties take effect after 30 minutes of user inactivity or the next time that the user logs on to Outlook Web Access. To force the changes to take effect immediately, restart Internet Information Services (IIS) by using the command iisreset/noforce.
noteNote:
When you add host names to the Block and Allow lists, you must enter a server name. Entering a Windows file share name will not work.
