If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Hell All,

IN this case the problem was .... You will get to see thsese attributes in ADSIEDIT
Configuration --> Microsoft exchange --> ORG --> ADmin groups --> Exch admn groups --> Folder heirarchies --> public folders --> properties --> MSEXCHOWNINGPFTREEBL was <not set>

Configuration --> Microsoft exchange --> ORG --> ADmin groups --> Exch admn groups --> Servers --> Exchange server --> information store -> SG6 --> Public Folder --> properties --> Also the msexchowningPFTREE was <not set>

I copied the DN of the Folder heirarchies --> Public folders.


we went to EMC --> Mount the public folder store.

Happy Ending.....
