Configurable Features for Service Plans and Mailbox Plans

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-28

Service plans enforce certain interdependencies between features. Provisioning a new organization will fail if dependencies are broken, if an unknown feature is referenced, or the XML schema is invalid for a given service plan.

importantImportant:
Features in each section of the service plan and mailbox plans must be in alphabetical order. In addition, Boolean features (those that require a true or false value) that aren’t listed in the service plan won’t be enabled.

Service plan templates are stored in the following location: <Exchange Installation Path>\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\ServicePlans. To learn more, see Understanding Service Plans and Mailbox Plans.

You can verify a service plan by running the New-Organization cmdlet with the WhatIf parameter.

This section includes features that apply to the entire tenant organization.

Global elements determine which features will be permitted for the entire organization.
