Hi All,

My helpdesk is going to run the move-mailbox powershell script I created. But they dont have right for using the command - and therefore im looking for a way to run the Move-Mailbox with another useraccount and password..

Anyway to include credentials on this command ?

Please help me with a solution.

Best Regards

There are two Credentials you can pass to move-mailbox

-TargetForestCredential <PSCredential>
    The TargetForestCredential parameter specifies the credentials that are
    used when connecting to the target data base.

-SourceForestCredential <PSCredential>
    The SourceForestCredential parameter specifies the credentials that are
    used when connecting to the source mailbox.

Thx for the help,

I had this command after "| Format-List -Property StatusMessage" -Confirm:$false so it would only display a small bit of the move text.

This was getting me error - dont know why

-confirm is a parameter for move-mailbox and should be before the pipe.
