Exchange 2010 Rules Quota

I'm trying to increase the rules quota on Exchange 2010.  But when I run the command "Set-Mailbox username@domain.com -RulesQuota:256kb", I get the error "A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'RulesQuota'".

did you try to run EMS as an administrator and then run the command?
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
Try the below cmdlet. Basically you are just removing the ':'

set-mailbox "username" -rulesquota 256kb
pcservneAuthor Commented:
Yes, I am running AS administrator.

When I run "set-mailbox username -rule", hitting TAB does nothing.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
Ok, then you may need to check your permissions. If it didn't complete. What are your permissions in your Exchange Environment?
pcservneAuthor Commented:
What permissions do you want me to check?  I'm running as the domain administrator.  I've made no changes to any permissions.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
do you have recipient management permissions and org management permissions.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
You can check the RBAC rules in Exchange ECP
pcservneAuthor Commented:
I don't know what you're asking me to check.  I only know the basics about Exchange 2010.  Sorry.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
Do you have a lead Exchange admin or are you the only Exchange person?
IvanSystem EngineerCommented:
Hi,

go to Active directory users and computers, find group named Organization Management and see if your domain admin account is member of that group. If it is not, then you most likely don't have permissions to run those commands.
Add your account to group, log out off exchange, log back in and then try to run command.

Regards,
Ivan.
pcservneAuthor Commented:
I am the only "Exchange person".

I verified the domain administrator is a member of Organization Management.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
If that is the case and you are running the exchange shell as the admin that has those permissions, then it should work. i don't have any other suggestions.
systechadminConsultantCommented:
well it seems like yo have permission issues...
Hypercat (Deb)Commented:
I believe you have to use the user's email address not just their alias:

Set-Mailbox username@domain.com -RulesQuota:256kb

See if that helps.
pcservneAuthor Commented:
I've tried user@domain.com and get the same error.
Hypercat (Deb)Commented:
I know this sounds like nit-picking, but try this: before you issue the command, do a "cd \" command so that you're sitting at the C:\ prompt instead of C:\Windows\System32. Believe it or not I have found with certain commands that it makes a difference!
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
Add yourself to the 'recipient management' role and see if that corrects this issue. this is really seems to be a permissions issue because the cmdlets are valid. you mentioned you were in the organizational management group. add yourself also the the 'recipient management' group.
pcservneAuthor Commented:
Running the command from the root of C: gives the same error.
pcservneAuthor Commented:
Was not a member of 'recipient management', but added domain administrator to it and still get the same error.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
are you sure you are running these cmds with the correct user account?
pcservneAuthor Commented:
Yes.  If I put in an invalid username I get a different error.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
are you typing this cmdlet manually or are you doing a copy and paste. make sure there are no excessive spaces or anything. manually type out the cmdlets if you are not.
pcservneAuthor Commented:
I've copy & pasted as well as typing it in manually.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
type just the first parts of cmdlets and press tab so that it will auto complete and see what happens.

set-mail then press tab and it should complete.

Also -rulesq then press tab and it should auto complete
pcservneAuthor Commented:
If you read above I've already tried the TAB thing.  It does not auto-complete the RulesQuota command.
timgreen7077Exchange EngineerCommented:
I'm tapping out. not sure what's going on with your environment.
