We just removed Blackberry from our environment and I'm going through and doing the cleanup of settings we had to put on for BES.  I want to delete the throttling policy assoicated with BES, but I can't because some users are still assigned to it.  What is the cmdlet that I can use to view which users are assigned to a certain throttling policy?

Also, what would the following line actually do?  I accidentally ran it and I want to make sure it didn't affect anything.
get-mailbox | throttlingpolicy

You can use the Get-ThrottlingPolicyAssociation cmdlet for mailboxes within your org

I would of course export results out to a csv file so that you can sort accordingly

I figured out how to do it using this:

Get-Mailbox | where-object {$_.ThrottlingPolicy -eq "BESPolicy"}


I'm still not sure what running this command did exactly:
get-mailbox | throttlingpolicy

Did that assign users to no throttling policy?  I meant to put a fl in there but missed it.

This will work also...probably not the cleanest and if you think you will have over 1000 results you need to add -resultsize unlimited

Really the only user that should have the policy assigned directly at a user level should be your besadmin mailbox. So if you havent deleted that mailbox yet that is your problem user.

get-mailbox -Filter {ThrottlingPolicy -ne $null} | fl name, alias, Throttlingpolicy

Thanks.  We did have less than 1000 mailboxes and it was just the besadmin user that had the policy assigned.

Can you tell me what running "get-mailbox | throttlingpolicy" did when I accidentally ran it?

Also, should most users have the default policy assigned, or no policies assigned for throttlingpolicy?

yeah that works also your other command didn't do anything as you didn't use a set cdmlet

What would that command do exactly?  Because I did get a bunch of return errors..

Do you know if all users by default get the default throttling policy or no throttling policy?

All users by defualt should have no throttling policy assigned to them..

you can do a spot checks on user accounts using

get-mailbox -id useralias | fl name,Throttlingpolicy


You probably got a bunch of errors because you just had | throttlingpolicy...where it is looking for an object before that to sort, filter, etc....

There were a couple ways to accomplish this and one of my posts also worked to get the information I was looking for.
