Use the Disable-JournalRule cmdlet to disable an existing journal rule on a Hub Transport server.

disable-journalrule -Identity <RuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-LawfulInterception <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Disable-JournalRule cmdlet disables an existing rule used by the Journaling agent.

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 "Journaling" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the rule to be disabled. Enter either the GUID or the name of the journal rule. You can omit the parameter label.




The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.




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




The LawfulInterception parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.




The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
