command line for creating Public folder in exchange 2003

Hello,

I need a command/tool to create public folders and preferably set permissions on them, both using the command line to add them in bulk and/or automatically via a script. im running MS exchange 2003 on windows server 2003.

Thanks,

I don't think there is any command line tools to do this with exchange 2003.

With 2007/2010 you can use the Exchange powershell but not 2003

Hi,

I think you can use this ExchMbx

I don't think that can be used to create public folder stores.

I'm with Demazter - there are no command line tools in Exchange 2003, they only appeared in Exchange 2007.
Outlook is the best place to create and manage Public Folders including permissions:

You stand a bit of a chance setting the permissions. However, creating folders is a bit beyond the command line tools as they stand.

As far as permissions are concerned, you may look at PFDAVAdmin which will allow permissions to be imported.

You can certainly read and change permissions using WMI. The trouble is, few pre-built tools exist to present the WMI interface in a simple manner so you'd be reading and writing the security descriptor manually.

If you want to look into WMI, documentation of the interface is here:

I can probably help if you need it. But I don't run Exchange 2003 these days and have no means of testing or building code from scratch.

It is correct for creation of folders, but not for permissions. Permissions can be scripted given the investment of enough time to learn how :)

Gotta love those script buddies ;-)

Much prefer to use Outook! :-)
But there is no point in writing a script for permissions for something that doesn't exist :-)

Eggs and chickens and all that!

I truely do not know how to evaluate those answers, the answer i got is actually "not doable", it is not satisfactory, but well, apparenly agreed upon ... i do not to wish to set permissions on them since i will not create them manually, the creation of public folders is a step in an automated process, doing it manually will render the whole thing "unwanted" !

I wish a moderator would decide what to do !
