Error removing old partnerships


  • I was just looking to clean up the Partnership list to just current devices.  I had recently wiped a lost device so was going through everyone.  My account for example has many devices listed as I have tested out many droids & iOS to make sure they work for people.  It will not let me remove the old devices though always instantly errors saying it cannot find the device.  Pic below of GUI error and PS of device partnerships.

    However it shows all the last sync times, etc from when the devices were used.  While I have reset the phones just as a security precaution I'd like to remove previous devices and unused devices from all the users.  I didn't see any other posts on this particular issue or any PS out there to remove old ones either, if anyone knows a way to force it to drop these old partnerships I'd appreciate it.  If anyone knows a way using PS I'd appreciate it even more as it is more efficient than the GUI.

  • Hi,

    We can try to set HasActiveSyncDevicePartnership to false.

    Please try to remote wipe the device from OWA

    Besides, I find the following cmdlt from internet for your reference, you may modify the cmdlet a little.

    Get-CASMailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter{(HasActiveSyncDevicePartnership -eq $true) -AND (name -notlike "cas_*") -AND (name -notlike "DiscoverysearchMailbox*")} | ForEach {Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox:$_.Identity | Where-Object {$_.LastSuccessSync -le (Get-Date).AddDays("-7")}} | Remove-ActiveSyncDevice
