Description

Enabling Outlook Anywhere on the Client Access server prevents the server from accepting external connections by Outlook 2003 or later clients by using Outlook Anywhere.

When you run this cmdlet, it can take as long as an hour for the settings to become effective, depending on how long it takes for Active Directory to replicate.

After the Client Access server is disabled for Outlook Anywhere, you may want to remove the RPC over HTTP proxy Windows networking component.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1

Disable-OutlookAnywhere -Server CAS01

This example disables Outlook Anywhere on the Client Access server named CAS01.

Example 2

Disable-OutlookAnywhere -Identity: "exch01\rpc (Default Web Site)"

This example disables Outlook Anywhere on the specified virtual directory on the Client Access server named exch01.

Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010
-DomainController

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

Type:Fqdn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010
-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the Outlook Anywhere virtual directory that you want to disable. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the virtual directory. For example:

  • Name or <Server>\Name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • GUID

The Name value uses the syntax "<VirtualDirectoryName> (<WebsiteName>)" from the properties of the virtual directory. You can specify the wildcard character (*) instead of the default website by using the syntax <VirtualDirectoryName>*.

You can't use the Identity and Server parameters in the same command.

Type:VirtualDirectoryIdParameter

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

-Server

The Server parameter specifies the Client Access server where you want to run this command. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Exchange Legacy DN

Type:ServerIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
