Hello,

I am trying to find a way to export a list of all of my Public Folders to a spreadsheet.

I have tried pfadmin, pfinfo and I cannot find the correct syntax in order to get it to work.

Can anybody help me??

Thanks!

I forgot to mention...

I need to have it indicate the full path also... so the spreadsheet looks like:


\Public Folders
\Public Folders\Folder A
\Public Folders\Folder A\Subfolder 1
\Public Folders\Folder B
\Public Folders\Folder C
\Public Folders\Folder C\Subfolder 1


etc...

Hi jrhill00,
Sorry, I've not been able to try this myself - but the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;185018 should help.

Is suggests creating a file called "pflist.csv" containing:
Obj-Class,Directory Name,Display Name,E-mail Addresses

Then running dsexport from the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit (SDK)

All that said, I think finding the DSExport program might be the challenge here....

Yes.. I already checked the MS Platform SDK and cannot find dsexport.exe

(It is not where it says it is)

jrhill00: I thought that the problem would be finding it :-)

I think that PFadmin is the tool to use, although it's difficult finding out anything about it.  I finally found the doc http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;287110

I think you need the command:
pfadmin     administrator   list

Where administrator is the name of an account that has admin rights over the server.  Note that you need to seperate the parameters with a TAB not a space.

Apparently you can get more info on how to use this tool from the file Exchtool.chm on the Exchange Resource Kit CD.
