  • Hi Adndrey,

    Try using a scripting agent in the CmdletExtensionAgents directory. Put some logic into it that says if the command enable or new mailbox is enacted, pick form a list of databases that exclude the one you want.

    Hope it helps.

  • See if IsSuspendedFromProvisioning  switch helps.

    Set-Mailboxdatabase DatabaseName -IsSuspendedFromProvisioning

  • Hi Shabarinath,

    I have looked all switches for the Set-MailboxDatabase cmdlets, but there aren't any switches that could help me to achive the goal. So, the IsSuspendedFromProvisioning switch have not given results for blocking to creating mailboxes.

  • Hi Rowen-Xu,

    Thanks for your replay,

    The Control Automatic Mailbox Distribution feature is a solution for me. Thanks again.

    But, I would like to khow, are there any methods to use ADSI Edit or Power Shell switches to block creating mailboxes for a particular database?

    Thank you for patience.
