Use the Remove-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule to remove any existing device access rule.

Remove-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule -Identity <ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




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




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 retrieves data from 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.

If you've created device access rules for groups of devices, you can use the Remove-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule cmdlet to remove any access rule.

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.
