Stop-ManagedFolderAssistant [-Identity <ServerIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Managed Folder Assistant uses the managed folder and Managed Folder Mailbox Policy settings of users to process mailbox items for retention and journaling as needed. Use the Stop-ManagedFolderAssistant cmdlet to stop the Managed Folder Assistant as soon as processing of the current mailbox is completed.

To run the Stop-ManagedFolderAssistant cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

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

Parameter Required Type Description

Confirm

Optional

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller to use to write this configuration change to Active Directory. Use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that you want to use.
