Disable Search Indexing on a Specific Database Exchange Server

This blog post will show you how to disable search Indexing on a specific Exchange Server Database.

In order to disable the Indexing I’ll use the cmdlet Set-Mailboxdatabase as shown below:

Set-MailboxDatabase “Database Name” -IndexEnabled $False

In my case I’ll disable search Indexing on a database called RDB01.

Set-MailboxDatabase RDB01 -IndexEnabled $False

To check that the Indexing Is disabled run:

Get-MailboxDatabase RDB01 | Select-Object name, indexenabled |ft -AutoSize

The value IndexEnabled should be set to False
