This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to disable a Unified Messaging (UM) IP gateway. By default, when you create a UM IP gateway, the status of the UM IP gateway is enabled. However, after the UM IP gateway is created, you can disable the operation of the UM IP gateway by setting its status variable to disabled. After you disable the UM IP gateway, the IP gateway device with which it is associated with will no longer process Unified Messaging incoming calls.

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 has been enabled.


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

  1. In the console tree of the Exchange Management Console, expand the Organizational Configuration node.

  2. In the console tree, click Unified Messaging.

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

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

  5. In the action pane, click Disable immediately.

  6. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to confirm.

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

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Disable-UMIPGateway -Identity MyIPGateway -Immediate $true
