We need to allow 30 mobile devices per email account in Exchange 2013, what is the easiest way of doing so? This needs to be implemented for current accounts as well as future accounts.

the assigned of SUCH policy is not a mobile device policy but throttling policy for the mailbox

So since you can't edit the global

 try below

New-Throttlingpolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices" -EasMaxDevices 30 -EasMaxConcurrency 30              

for single user
Set-Mailbox <user> -ThrottlingPolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices"

for the whole organisation
get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | Set-Mailbox -ThrottlingPolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices"

For future,

you can change your new policy to the default policy

Set-Throttlingpolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices" -isdefault:$true

**hint**: if you want to change the default, i will suggest you look at all settings and make sure you keep the settings as much as you can.
Jian An LimSolutions ArchitectCommented:

default it allows 10

so you need to change the default throttling policy

get-throttlingpolicy | set-throttlingpolicy -EasMaxDevices 30 -EasMaxConcurrency 30

this will applies to every existing and new account as long as they have default throttling policy.

I run the following command and the get the following:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-throttlingpolicy | set-throttlingpolicy -EasMaxDevices 30 -EasMaxConcurrency 30
The global throttling policy is read-only. Create a new organization throttling policy instead.

On another note I created a new policy but when I go to assign it to a user it is not in the list although the command completed correctly.Screen Shot

Thanks but I get the following error when trying to make it defauly:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-Throttlingpolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices" -isdefault:$true
A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'isdefault'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-ThrottlingPolicy], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,Set-ThrottlingPolicy

Also I see the new policy is there with the get command:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-throttlingpolicy

Name                                    ThrottlingPolicyScope                   IsServiceAccount
----                                    ---------------------                   ----------------
GlobalThrottlingPolicy_65c30886-1aad... Global                                  False
Increased ActiveSync Devices            Regular                                 False

But when I use the comannd :
get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | Set-Mailbox -ThrottlingPolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices"

I get that it wasnt applied for every mailbox it goes through, also in the ECP I dont not see that policy to apply it to each mailbox all I see is the default am I missing something?
Jian An LimSolutions ArchitectCommented:
Set-Throttlingpolicy "Increased ActiveSync Devices" -isdefault:$true will not work sadly.

this means everytime you create a newmailbox, you need to change the throttling policy for each user.


this do not work in ECP that i believe.
This is a throttling policy


Get-ThrottlingPolicy | fl identity,is*
it shows you the default

get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | FT identity, *Throttling*
