Review the following for the full syntax

The -Isdefault:True switch doesnt apear to be a valid entry,

HAve a look here, it might be simpler to change the default policy to contain the required settings, alternatively.

 
Get-Mailbox | Set-MailBox -ThrottlingPolicy <newpolicyname>

Open in new window


This command will set ever mailbox on your system to use the desired throttling policy.

The Parameter you are inputting is valid however I don't think you are allowed to change that value.  Instead you are best to.

Locate the name of your default policy by running the command below and then modify the desired parameters of that policy  

"Get-ThrottlingPolicy | Where-Object {$_.IsDefault -eq "True"} | FL Identity"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks Rad, Luci.. it make sense to edit the default policy rather trying to switch.  But would certainly like to know how to change, though its just for cosmetic reasons. The default policy has a weirdo name and would prefer to change it to something sensible so that the documentation and the other team members can follow it easily..

thanks again.

I can't set that parameter isdefault in my lab and technet doesnt list it as a selectable attribute. I guess you can't set another policy to be default.

Thanks for the points and yeah I hear you, would be nice if they let you designate a new name for the default policy or let you rename it but that would cause some other issues I imagine
