Im having a problem Setting the mailbox limits for a database.

I use the folowing script


Get-MailboxDatabase "DATABASE" | Set-MailboxDatabase -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota "unlimited" -ProhibitSendQuota 2048MB -IssueWarningQuota 1843MB

Open in new window



and then run the folowing to get a report

Get-mailboxdatabase -identity "DATABASE" | get-mailbox | foreach {

$MailboxInfo = Get-Mailbox -identity $_.displayName
$MailboxStat = Get-MailboxStatistics -identity $_.displayName

Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty UseDefault $MailboxInfo.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty WarningQuota $MailboxInfo.IssueWarningQuota
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty SendQuota $MailboxInfo.ProhibitSendQuota
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty SendRecieveQutoa $MailboxInfo.ProhibitSendReceiveQuota

Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty QuotaStatus $MailboxStat.StorageLimitStatus
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty TotalItems $MailboxStat.ItemCount
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty TotalSizeMB $MailboxStat.TotalItemSize.Value.ToMB()
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty DeleteItems $MailboxStat.DeletedItemCount
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty DeletedSizeMB $MailboxStat.TotalDeletedItemSize.Value.ToMB() -PassThru
Add-Member -InputObject $_ noteProperty MailboxDatabase $MailboxStat.database

} | Export-Csv -Path "D:\DATABASE.csv"

Open in new window


and the results show that the "WarningQuota" "SendQuota" and "SendRecieveQutoa" havent changed, i would expect them all to be set as the first script.

Am i doing something wrong or is it that damn gnome in the server!

you are setting the levels on the DB not the mailboxes so mailboxes limits will not change and when calculated it will be based on the DB where they are located.
so this is correct
