Quick tip: Exclude a mailbox database from automatic mailbox provisioning

Here is a quick tip on how to manage automatic provisioning for mailbox databases.

This could be useful when you have a standard quota set on most databases and then use a mailbox databases with a different quota. then you would like to exclude the mailbox database with different quota and move the mailboxes to that mailbox database manually. in other words when you are using a VIP mailbox database. Here is the command:

Set-MailboxDatabase <MailboxDatabaseName> -IsExcludedFromProvisioning $true

Example:

Set-MailboxDatabase MailboxDatabase7 -IsExcludedFromProvisioning $true

To retrieve a list of all mailbox databases excluded from provisioning run the following command:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Where { $_.IsExcludedFromProvisioning -eq $true}

If you want to include a database again you run the following command:

Set-MailboxDatabase <MailboxDatabaseName> -IsExcludedFromProvisioning $false

Example:

Set-MailboxDatabase MailboxDatabase7 -IsExcludedFromProvisioning $false
