I previously wrote a series of 3 articles explaining how to use the Exchange Management Shell to import PST files into Exchange 2010 mailboxes. To support these I am now creating a series of 3 videos. In this, the first video I look at identifying the machine names of the computers on your network for use in a subsequent search for PST files.
In the next video I will go through finding PST files on your network.
In the last part of this guide the process for importing a local PST file into exchange server was shown. However, in reality it is likely that these PST files are scattered liberally around your network on the hard drives of your users machines as a result of Outlooks personal archiving. Ideally – so that this process is transparent to your users, you’d like some way of finding all these PST files – pairing them up with their users, and importing them into the appropriate mailbox. Here I show you how.
Importing a PST file into Exchange 2010 requires the use of the Exchange Management Shell (EMS) and lots of Powershell scripts and cmdlets. here I go through how to get started. You can watch a video on this too!
