LastLoggedOnUserAccount in Exchange Online/Exchange 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that the new version does not populate the LastLoggedOnUserAccount parameter of get-mailboxstatistics, but can someone link me official article that confirms this? I remember seeing this on TechNet, along with a brief explanation on why the PG decided to ditch this, however I am no longer able to find the article.

  • Hello Vasilcho,

    After testing in the lab with different version with exchange 2013, we find the parameter is also empty. After confirming with our related engineer, this is by design. In Exchange 2013, we take more about security and compatibility into consideration. Therefore, the parameter is not used any more. Instead, we use mailbox audit logging to accomplish this. See more details in the following link:

  • Hi Vasilcho,

    Try to find the official article that you mentioned, however no result unfortunately.

    If we want to check when a user last logged on to  their mailbox in Exchange 2007/2010, we can use the get-mailboxstatistics cmdlet with LastLoggedOnUserAccount parameter.

    With Exchange 2013 part of this information is now available through the EAC as well, method as below:

    1. Navigate to Recipients and then Mailboxes;

    2. Double-click on the user you want to check this information for;

    3. Select the Mailbox Usage tab and in there you will see the Last Logon date and time.

     

    Thanks

  • The user info is not available, that's the problem. LastLoggedOnUserAccount is always empty, and the info in EAC only includes the last logon time, not the user. Makes it rather hard to audit... 

    I need official source for this, but the article I've read before seems to have disappeared. Guess I'll have to open another ticket...

  • Hello Vasilcho,

    I have found an article may be related to this:
    http://community.office365.com/en-us/forums/148/t/213335.aspx

    If the get-mailboxstatistic can't get the user logon information, we can use Mailbox Audit Logging to accomplish this. See more details in the following link:

    If htere's any question or concern, feel free to contact us.

    Best regards!

  • Still looking for that article or any kind of official document that mentions LastLoggedOnUserAccount being discontinued. It's the same for my Ex2013 box, so it's not just for Exchange Online...

  • Again, I already knew that. I am simply looking for any kind of official document that mentions this. If you are not able to provide such, then I can use your answer I guess.

    Thanks.
