Hi,

Move mailboxes querying the ntaccount name in a txt file. In exchange 2007.

I want help with a script that can check each user name in the txt file and move mailboxes from one server store to another server store.

A log file if possible with success and failure.

regards
Raja

I just did this with a CSV I exported from our Exchange.

Let's say you have a CSV outputted with alias for each one.  That means it can be queried through your AD by using "Domain\$alias".  If this doesn't work, then you will have to adjust accordingly.

So what I did was set up the variable to hold all of the accounts:

$Accounts = import-csv "C:\Users.csv"

Then you can simply do whatever you want with this information now:

$Accounts | %{move-mailbox -identity "Domain\$($_.alias)" -targetdatabase "$TargetDB"}

This is assuming that above the fields you want to use, is the word alias.

Now if you were doing a text file, I would do:

$Accounts = get-content "C:\TextFile.txt"

And the code would change just a little to the below:
$Accounts | %{move-mailbox -identity "Domain\$_" -targetdatabase "$TargetDB"}


HTH,

Forgot to add this bit:

You can run this in the Powershell window, and it will return errors as it tries to move accounts if it encounters any.

This is a pretty straight forward issue, but if you really wanted to keep track in a text file, you could look into using the Start-Transcript and Stop-Transcript commands.  This will capture anything in the window.
