Use the Set-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule cmdlet to set the level of access for the rule.

Set-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule -Identity <ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRuleIdParameter> [-AccessLevel <Allow | Block | Quarantine>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Your rule can define multiple groups of devices: allowed devices, blocked devices, and quarantined devices.

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 ActiveSync settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the device access rule.




The AccessLevel parameter specifies whether the devices are allowed, blocked, or quarantined.




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.
