I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can do this:


Set-Mailbox -Identity "username" -IssueWarningQuota 3584mb -ProhibitSendQuota 4096mb -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 4096mb -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false

Run the following to see the mailbox size

Get-MailboxStatistics -Identity "username" | ft displayname, totalitemsize

This will show you the current size of the mailbox.

Oh ok run the below cmdlet against the DB that the mailbox resides on:

clean-mailboxdatabase "database that has the mailbox"

Allow a bit of time for the the DB to update itself. This doesn't remove anything or change anything on the DB. This just forces a refresh of the DB with updates AD properties on the mailbox. It could take about 30 minutes to an hour to show update. It should re-enable itself
