Enable-Ual

Enables UAL at the next restart.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Enable0
Enable-Ual [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Enable-Ual cmdlet enables User Access Logging (UAL) at the next restart of the server. You can use the CimSession parameter to run the cmdlet on a remote server. This cmdlet does not start the UAL service.

You can use the Get-Ual cmdlet to check the startup status for UAL. You can use the Disable-Ual and Enable-Ual cmdlets to change the startup status.

For more information about UAL, see the User Access Logging Overview topic in the TechNet library at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh849634.aspx.

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.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
