Cancel a Remote Wipe Request from a Mobile Device via Powershell

Scenario:  A user has found a missing mobile device. While the device was missing, the user has initiated a remote wipe on it.  We want to prevent the remote wipe from occurring when the phone is powered back on.

Solution: Run this via Exchange Management Shell:

clear-activesyncdevice <identity> -cancel:$true

Note: I tried running the -cancel $true as stated in the article, but I received this error:
A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument ‘True’.  I replaced it with -cancel:$true
