Set-AvailabilityConfig

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-12

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Set-AvailabilityConfig cmdlet to set the access level for free/busy information.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Set-AvailabilityConfig [-Identity <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-OrgWideAccount <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter>] [-PerUserAccount <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example is useful with a trusted cross-forest Availability service. If the remote forest is trusted, and a per-user free/busy proxy account or group in the remote forest is configured to use the service account, the configuration is added to the current forest to authorize the Microsoft ActiveSync request from the remote forest.

Set-AvailabilityConfig -PerUserAccount <domain name of servers group in remote forest>

This example is useful if the remote forest isn't trusted. Because this account is used for a cross-forest free/busy proxy account or group, minimize security vulnerabilities by using the credentials of a user who doesn't have an Exchange mailbox. When you're prompted, type the user name and password.

Set-AvailabilityConfig -OrgWideAccount <ExampleCredentials>

The Set-AvailabilityConfig cmdlet defines two accounts or security groups: a per-user free/busy proxy account or group, and an organization-wide free/busy proxy account or group. These accounts and groups are trusted by all availability services in the current organization for availability proxy requests.

For cross-forest availability services to retrieve free/busy information in the current forest, they must be using one of the specified accounts, belong to one of the specified security groups, or have a user name and password for one of the specified accounts or security groups.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Availability service configuration settings" entry in the Clients and mobile devices permissions topic.
