Having a central location to store all your data on the local network can come in very handy when it comes to sharing your files and providing access for other users. FreeNAS is an open source solution that is very quick to setup. My main use for
FreeNAS is for creating shared storage for VMware ESX or ESXi hosts – a requirement when you want to use some of the vSphere clustering features like HA and DRS. I simply provision a VM that it runs on and use that to provide the storage in NFS (Network File System) format to my hosts. FreeNAS supports some great features. Namely – CIFS for Windows shares, FTP, NFS, iSCSI and many others. It also supports software RAID 0, 1, or 5 and is so small, you can even install it on a 64MB flash disk making it portable too.
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.
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.
