Questions on two Power Shell command to control ActiveSync connections
Posted on 2013-02-03
We run Exchange 2010 SP1. We have an established ActiveSync community with about 500 users connecting. The only thing we use to control connections is applying a policy to the devices. It is standard practice to use to have everyone including new users disabled for ActiveSync except the ones that are currently using it but this practice is not always followed.
I didn't think there was anything available to control access and then I read about the two Power Shell commands below:
I don't know if the second command is anything like, or is, the ABQ (Allow, Block, Quarantine) that I have read about.
My question is since our current Org policy allows everything, if I set it to Quarantine to catch a new user that gets created with AS enabled and then tries to connect, will this have any affect on our current users?
As for the New-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule, if you establish a rule or rules for some devices, does this automatically block everthing else that tries to connect.
