This is the third and final clip in this series explaining how to use the Exchange Management Shell to import PST files into Exchange 2010 mailboxes. In this video, now that we have a list of relevant machine names, as well as the names, owners and locations of PST files on those machines, we’ll run through a script to set up the Mailbox-Import requests from these PST files into their relevant mailboxes in Exchange. Further information can be found in this article.
In part one of this series, we looked at how to identify the relevant machines on your network (i.e. machines which are currently offering refuge to PST files), and in part 2 we covered how to use the Exchange Management Shell to identify the filenames, owners and locations of the PST files those machines. This final video will complete the process, and cover the actual import procedure.
The second video in a series of 3 videos explaining how to use the Exchange Management Shell to import PST files into Exchange 2010 mailboxes. In this video we will take the list of machine names we created in the previous video and use WMI to search each of these for PST files. We will then record the location of these files and the file owners. Further information can be found in this article.
In the previous video I identified the machine names of the computers on my network for use in a subsequent search for PST files. In the next video I will look at the scripts that will setup the Import-Mailbox requests from these PSTs into the relevant mailboxes in Exchange.
