From this article you need to specify the server name for -Identity

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998864(v=exchg.80).aspx

Also take a look here for more information on how to schedule that command.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123958(v=exchg.80).aspx

At the bottom under "For More Information" there are links to other related commands.

Hi,

that command is not correct, since it is for Exchange 2013.

Use command below.

Start-ManagedFolderAssistant -Mailbox ChrisH

Exactly...see the examples towards the bottom of the first link I posted.  You will see there are no quotes in the command.

Start-ManagedFolderAssistant
Start-ManagedFolderAssistant -Identity ExchSrvr1, ExchSrvr2
Start-ManagedFolderAssistant -Mailbox Chris
Get-Mailbox -Anr Chr -DomainController DC01 | Start-ManagedFolderAssistant

Hi,

Check on Exchange server, Event viewer --> Application --> Look for event ID 10027 (MSExchangeMailboxAssistants)

It should tell you if it is running.

PS: For mailbox size increasing, that goes as soon as you change size. There is not wait time. Just increase it, and it will be changed.

Regards,
Ivan.

To make sure the policy has been assigned correctly on a mailbox , you can use the following command to check:

Get-Mailbox yourmailbox | Select RetentionPolicy

Here it is: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123958(v=exchg.80).aspx

Check in Server Configuration --> Mailbox --> Mailbox Server --> Properties --> Messaging Records Management --> and check time set at  Schedule the Managed Folder Assistant.

There you can see when it is going to run, automatically.

Other time then that, you have to run it manually.

This blog tells that the policy may not be immediately available after setting.

BTW...what SP and RU level are you at?
