Use the Remove-RpcClientAccess cmdlet to remove the configuration information that allows RPC access through the Client Access server role on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. After you remove the configuration information, the Exchange RPC Client Access service stops and no longer starts.

Remove-RPCClientAccess -Server <ServerIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Server parameter specifies the Client Access server.




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 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.

Disabling RPC client access on a server blocks all RPC access through the specified Client Access server. Therefore, RPC clients (for example, clients running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007) with mailboxes on any mailbox databases configured to use the specified Client Access server won't be able to connect.

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 "RPC Client Access settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.
