I have a requirement to move 500 SharePoint web applications to new server.So before moving the application want to disable the alerts at web application level so that no alert notifications gets triggered immediately after the movement. Then want to enable the alerts in new server.
I tried below PowerShell to verify that on one web application in current environment and power shell got executed successfully and also if I check in general settings of the web applications alert is off.
$weburl= Get-SPWebApplication "http://Webapplication1/" $weburl.AlertsEnabled = $false $weburl.Update()
Still then I am getting alerts if some one creates new item in list or Library as I had subscribed prior to alert me on those list/libraries.
Please guide me to resolve this issue. Thanks in advance!
