How to Restore a Details Template to the Default Configuration

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

The Details Templates Editor does not contain an Undo button, nor can you use a keyboard shortcut to undo an action. To undo an addition you made to the template, you must use the DELETE key. To undo a deletion, you must reapply the setting. You can also revert to the original settings by exiting the Details Templates Editor without saving your changes. If you want to undo changes after you have saved, you can restore the template. When you restore a template, all customization is lost, and the template is restored to its original configuration. This topic explains how to use the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) or the Exchange Management Shell to restore a details template to its default configuration.

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

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

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

Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware of the following:

  • In the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007, you must add the Details Templates Editor snap-in before you can perform any other details template management tasks. For detailed instructions, see How to Add the Details Templates Editor to the Microsoft Management Console.

  • In Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you can access the Details Templates Editor from the Toolbox node in the Exchange Management Console.

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, click Toolbox.

  3. In the result pane, click Details Templates Editor, and then, in the action pane, click Open Tool. The Details Templates Editor opens in a separate MMC.

  4. In the details pane, select the template that you want to restore, and then in the action pane, click Restore.

  5. Click Yes to confirm that you want to restore the template to its original state. All customization will be lost.

  • Run the following command.

    Restore-DetailsTemplate -Identity <DetailsTemplateIdParameter>
    

    For example, to restore the United States English contacts details template, run the following command.

    Restore-DetailsTemplate -Identity "en-US\Contact"
    

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Restore-DetailsTemplate reference topic.

  1. Start the Details Templates Editor.

  2. In the details pane, right-click the template that you want to restore, and then click Restore.

  3. Click Yes to confirm that you want to restore the template to its original state. All customization will be lost.

  • Run the following command.

    Restore-DetailsTemplate -Identity <DetailsTemplateIdParameter>
    

    For example, to restore the United States English contacts details template, run the following command.

    Restore-DetailsTemplate -Identity "en-US\Contact"
    

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Restore-DetailsTemplate (RTM) reference topic.
