When you disable a cmdlet extension agent in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, the agent is disabled on every server running Exchange 2010 in the organization. When an agent is disabled, it's not made available to cmdlets. Cmdlets can no longer use the agent to perform additional operations.

Before you disable an agent, be sure that you're aware of how the agent works and what impact disabling the agent will have on your organization.
