Clear-RemoteAccessInboxAccountingStore

Clears the inbox accounting store for the specified time period.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Clear0
Clear-RemoteAccessInboxAccountingStore [[-StartDateTime] <DateTime> ] [[-EndDateTime] <DateTime> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Clear-RemoteAccessInboxAccountingStore cmdlet clears the inbox accounting store for the specified time period.

The store for inbox accounting resides locally on every Remote Access server and the clearing operation happens at the server level. Therefore this cmdlet is not impacted by a multi-site deployment.

Note: If neither a start date nor an end date is specified, then the entire inbox accounting store is cleared.

When a store is cleared more space becomes available to record accounting data.

This cmdlet can be used to clear portions of the store even if inbox accounting is Disabled. This is because the store exists even when inbox accounting is later disabled.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
