This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to enable a Unified Messaging (UM) IP gateway. By default, when a UM IP gateway is created, the status of the UM IP gateway is set to enabled. After you create the UM IP gateway, you can control the operation and functionality of the UM IP Gateway object by setting its status variable.

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrators role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm the following:

  • A UM dial plan has been created.

  • A UM IP gateway has been created.

  • The UM IP gateway status is set to disabled.


To use the Exchange Management Console to enable a UM IP gateway

  1. In the console root of the Exchange Management Console, click the Organizational Configuration node.

  2. In the result pane, click Unified Messaging.

  3. In the work pane, click the UM IP Gateways tab.

  4. In the work pane, select the UM IP gateway that you want to enable.

  5. In the action pane, click Enable.

To use the Exchange Management Shell to enable a UM IP gateway

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Enable-UMIPGateway -Identity MyIPGateway
