comparing shell output to EAX active sync information

Posted on 2015-02-16
Last Modified: 2015-03-18
I have run the following shell command get-mobiledevicepolicy | fl

which returns a mass of data about the AS policy.

In EAC under mobile > mobile device policy, if you select a policy, on the right it lists key settings such as :

allow/block devices that dont fully support policies to synchornise
mobile device settings

My question is, how do I map those settings shown in EAC to those listed in the output of shell command?

Hi pma111

Are you trying to match up what you see in the console with the policy output?

i.e.: allow/block devices that dont fully support policies  >  AllowNonProvisionableDevices ??
