Use the Enable-JournalRule cmdlet to enable an existing journal rule on a computer that has the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Hub Transport server role installed.

Enable-JournalRule -Identity <RuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Enable-JournalRule cmdlet enables an existing journal rule to be used by the Journaling agent.

To run the Enable-JournalRule cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




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




The Confirm parameter 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 parameter.




To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter on the command.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, 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 parameter.
