Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-05

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the New-WorkloadManagementPolicy cmdlet to create a custom workload management policy.

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

New-WorkloadManagementPolicy -Name <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Template <WorkloadManagementPolicyIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates a custom workload management policy that will be used to control Exchange workloads at the Dublin, Ireland location of Contoso.com. The name of the server in the Dublin, Ireland location of Contoso.com is Dublin01.

New-WorkloadManagementPolicy -Name DublinWorkloadManagementPolicy -DomainController Dublin02.contoso.com
Set-ExchangeServer -WorkloadManagementPolicy DublinWorkloadManagementPolicy -Identity Dublin01.

This example uses the Template parameter to create a policy object DallasWorkloadManagementPolicy based on the Default Workload Management Policy. It is then customized to remove the ELC Assistant workload from the Workload Management Policy. The Workload Management Policy is then assigned to server Dallas01.

New-WorkloadManagementPolicy -Name DallasWorkloadManagementPolicy -Template DefaultWorkloadManagementPolicy_15.0.505.0
Remove-WorkloadPolicy DallasWorkloadManagementPolicy\ELCAssistant
Set-ExchangeServer -WorkloadManagementPolicy DallasWorkloadManagementPolicy -Server Dallas01

When you install Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, a default workload management policy DefaultWorkloadManagementPolicy_<Build Number> is created. If you want to customize the way Exchange controls the resources used by Exchange workloads, you can create a new workload management policy.

You can assign a workload management policy to a specific server using the Set-ExchangeServer cmdlt.

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 "Exchange workload throttling" entry in the Server health and performance permissions topic.

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




The Template parameter specifies the workload policies that this workload management policy should contain.
