Question about the new Set-ManagedFolder Inbox -BaseFolderOnly $true command.
With Update Rollup 5, Microsoft introduced the new manageed content management shell command "Set-ManagedFolder Inbox -BaseFolderOnly $true"This allows you to prevent managed folder assistant from applying policies to the subfolders for the management folder. When the command is run from the shell nothing is returned so you really have no feedback to if it worked or not. Does anyone know of a command that will list which folders only have the root folder set up for management only, ignoring the subfolders. I've tried the "Get-ManagedFolder inbox | FL" command but it doesn't show anything. I'm getting ready to apply this to about 1000 mailboxes and I'd like to have something verifying the folders are set up, so theonlymanaged folderis on thebase or root folder only. Thanks!

What do you mean tried the "Get-ManagedFolder inbox | FL command but it doesn't show anything? Do you mean theres no output after you ran this cmdlet? The cmdlet you used is correct, it can use to check the BaseFolderOnly flag. Please try to re-launch the EMS and run the cmdlet, also check if theres any error info in the application log after running the cmdlet Resources: KB 939037 Get-ManagedFolder

Thanks for the response back. I think the command is working but it doesn't show any feedback to what the status of the flag is. When you enter the command it just comes back to a prompt.If you run the command multiple times,you do get amessage that the command ran successfully but nothing was changed. What I'm looking for is some way that would list which folders had the flag set and which one's don't. When I ran the command "Get-ManagedFolder inbox | FL command" it lists the properties for the folder but doesn't show anything about the flag.
