ActiveSyncenabled may not be performed by the resource mailbox

    Question

  • I get the message 'ActiveSyncenabled may not be performed by the resource mailbox' whenever I run the following powershell command:

    get-casmailbox laptop01 |set-casmailbox -activesyncenabled $false

    Is it just the case that Active Sync can't be used with resource mailboxes and so I don't really need to set this to false?

    I'd appreciate any ideas!

    Many thanks.

  • Resource mailboxes have a disabled AD account by default, so no they cant be accessed via ActiveSync as long as that is the case.

  • Oh my goodness - thanks for the quick reply A D.

    Now you mention it, it makes sense as Active Sync requires the username and password for the resource account.

    Many thanks.

  • I have activated the AD account and given it a password.  I am able to access the account via OWA to confirm the ID and Password are working.

    When I try to disable or enable ActiveSync via both EMC and PowerShell command above, I still get the same error as above.

    Anything else to look for.  Thanks.
