Enable a Sharing Policy

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can enable a disabled sharing policy. You can create a sharing policy in a disabled state, and then enable it when you want the policy to be applied to the recipients provisioned to use the policy. When you enable the sharing policy, users provisioned to use this policy won't be able to share information until the Sharing Policy Assistant runs. To specify how often the Sharing Policy Assistant runs, use the Set-MailboxServer cmdlet with the SharingPolicySchedule parameter.
