I have an Exchange 2003 Server SP2 running ActiveSync on port 80 and all is good. All iPhone devices connect and sync corectly and the Exchange Server ActiveSync Web Administration tool is installed. I am looking for a way to list all devices that have associated with OMA ActiveSync for auditing purposes?

Also is there a way to globally disable OMA in active diectory since SP2 has enabled all the user accounts? I dont want users to setup devices without permission from IT.

Thank you for your response.
Actually I had tried that script with the same VB error the user on that website had encountered on two different exchange servers in two different domains. I did find a way to disable the Exchange features by: Active Directory search for all users. Selecting all users, then deselecting the users that I wanted to use OWA and ActiveSync. Right-click and ran the exchange wizard to disable the exchange features I wanted to restrict. So, that is done which is a good work around to not knowing who has used or is using ActiveSync or OMA without permission. Maybe Microsoft will create a management console that will give administrators better visibility over mobile devices in Exchange 2003 that 2007 has.

All this brings me too is the last part of my question:

Is it possible to disable OMA features by default for NEW users when the accounts are created rather that manually selecting and disabling? Can be such a pain to have to modify 10-20 new users at a time. I know that this can be setup during new installations but, what about existing Exchange 2003 deployments.
