can someone provide a powershell command to set the personal archive quota limit for all mailboxes on a database?
i have the command to do this on a per mailbox basis, but we have thousands of mailboxes, so this is not an efficient way of doing it.

thx - S.

Hi dekkar, actually i was referring specifically to the "personal archive" quota limit for all users on a database? i can't seem to find a way to set that at the DB level.
this EMS command works fine on a per mailbox basis:
Set-Mailbox –Identity “2010test” –ArchiveQuota 4GB –ArchiveWarningQuota 3750MB

but, i cant see doing that for 1000 mailboxes  : )

Why not? Give you something to do over the weekend!! ;)


ehhehe

Can you just put a group name into the identity rather than a user?


Or look at this command:


Get-Mailbox -Database "dbname" | Set-Mailbox –ArchiveWarningQuota” 900MB"

If you want all of your users to have the same limit, run Get-Mailbox | Set-Mailbox –ArchiveWarningQuota” 900MB"
