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

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.

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?

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*
