Get-​Ual

Gets the startup status for UAL.

Syntax

Get-Ual
   [-AsJob]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-Ual cmdlet gets the startup status for User Access Logging (UAL).

-- Enabled. UAL starts when Windows Server starts.

  • Disabled. UAL does not start when Windows Server starts.

You can use the Disable-Ual and Enable-Ual cmdlets to change the startup status. The Get-Ual cmdlet does not check whether the UAL service itself is running.

For more information about UAL, see the User Access Logging Overview topic in the TechNet library at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh849634.aspx.

Examples

Example 1: Get UAL startup configuration

PS C:\>Get-Ual
                                                    Enabled PSComputerName
                                                    ------- --------------
                                                    False

This command gets the startup status for the current server. The next time you restart this server, it does not start UAL.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
