Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy

 

Topic Last Modified: 2014-10-29

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 Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet to remove a specific Microsoft Mobile Device mailbox policy from a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2013.

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

WarningWarning:
The Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet will be removed in a future version of Exchange. Use the Remove-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy cmdlet instead. If you have any scripts that use the Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet, update them to use the Remove-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy cmdlet.

Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -Identity <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example removes the Mobile Device mailbox policy SalesPolicy.

Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -Identity "SalesPolicy"

This example removes the Mobile Device mailbox policy Default after confirmation is given.

Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -Identity "Default" -Confirm $true

This example removes the Mobile Device mailbox policy Management and bypasses any confirmation prompts.

Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -Identity "Management" -Force $true

A Mobile Device mailbox policy is a group of settings that specifies how mobile phones connect to Exchange. Exchange supports multiple Mobile Device mailbox policies. The Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet enables you to remove a specific Mobile Device mailbox policy. If any users are assigned to the policy when you remove it, the Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet fails.

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 "Mobile Device mailbox policy settings" entry in the Clients and mobile devices permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxPolicyIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the policy name.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch 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 switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force parameter specifies that the command should run immediately and bypass confirmation prompts.

WhatIf

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
