Set MailboxRegionalConfiguration for all users so OWA does not as them

Posted on 2016-11-21
Last Modified: 2016-11-21
We are migrating from Zimbra to Exchange.  One nuance is that when people log into OWA for the first time it asks them for language and time zone.  I want to set all users so that they are not asked that question.  Tried the PS Script below but it is asking me for an "Identity"

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration  -Language en-us -TimeZone "Mountain Standard Time"

Could someone please help me fill in the blanks.  Or is there a setting in EAC that I can hard set the time zone?

Base on what I'm reading you have to do -Identity first.

You are correct.  I am able to use the identity for an individual user but what is the identity if I want to do it for all users?

Try it this way.

Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity '<DATABASE_NAME>' | Get-Mailbox | Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -TimeZone '<Pacific Standard Time>' -DateFormat 'M/d/yyyy' -Language '<EN-US>' -TimeFormat 'h:mm tt'

Only substitute you timezone and you can omitt the date and time format
