Performing a Remote Mobile Wipe with Exchange server 2010

  • Open the Exchange Management Console (EMC)
  • Expand Microsoft Exchange On-Premises.
  • Expand Recipient Configuration.
  • Click Mailbox.
  • Right click to user and select Manage Mobile Phone .

In the Manage Mobile Phone Wizard, verify that device is selected that need to be wiped. If it isn’t, single-click to select it.

  • Under Action, click the radio button next to Perform a remote wipe to clear mobile phone data.
  • Click the Clear button.

2

  • Click Yes when prompted to confirm “Are you sure you want to clear the device for {device name}.”

The wizard will proceed to the completion screen where you should be presented with a message indicating the successful remote wipe command has been queued. Look closely and you’ll also notice the actual PowerShell cmdlet that’s executed by the GUI. Recall that Exchange 2010 is built to leverage the “power” of PowerShell; the GUI really just acts as a point and click front-end for the shell. Remote wipes are no exception, as they can be handled quite succinctly via two Exchange cmdlets: Get-ActiveSyncDevice and Clear-ActiveSyncDevice. Let’s jump right into that now.
