Exchange 2007 - Active SyncDeviceID's.

Posted on 2009-05-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-07
Hello - I am testing device restrictions for ActiveSync and have sucessfully setup device restrictions so well that no none of my phones or ipods will sync with my Ex2k7 server.

This is the device id that is listed under allowed device ids:

ActiveSyncAllowedDeviceIDs            : {XXXXXXXXE36B2B14131CD0SSSSSSSSSS}

The windows event vwr is giving this error message:

A blocked device of user [contoso\user], device id = [XXXXXXXXE36B2B14131CD0SSSSSSSSSS],  is attempting to synchronize with Exchange ActiveSync.

I clearly managed to get this to lock down my account so well that i cannot sync at all, how do i remove this device restriction? I tried removeing the Partner ship and it still lists my device as restriced.

This is the erro that i am getting on the phone:

Your account in Microsoft Exchange does not have permission to sync with your current settings. Error Code 0x85010004.

Please Advise... Thanks,

Sounds like it is a bug

Apparantly there is a hotfix available but you need to contact MS.

i was successfully able to sync the administrators account with the device, so i know that both the device work and the server itselef (Autodiscover) is setup correctly.

Set-CASMailbox -Identity <SMTP Address of user> -ActiveSyncEnabled $true
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Here is what i think happened: I made some new ActiveSync Policies that i thnk wxchange wasnt happy with. I could not sync any device to any account.

Once i removed those policies then i was able to sync to the administrators account, but i still couldnt sync to my account. So i posted on EE.

Then i figured that since i could access the WINSVR2\MicrosoftActiveSync whatever directory and login and not get rejected - i guessed correctly so that the issue is with the device.

I just wiped my device (which really does mean remove all data) and was able to resnc my account (finally).

Thanks for all your help... But i still do not know how to how to remove the restriction on active sync devices? After you set one?
