Hi I am using the following script to disable OWA for a list of users, how can I generate a result log file for actions like error warning and success while running this script?

I would like to get the following in log with respect to the result of command.

For each Successful operation print       - OWA disabled for user $username
For each Warning print             - OWA disabled for user $username with warning
For each Error print            - Not able to disable OWA for user $username

Thanks in advance.
$UserList = get-content userlist.txt

foreach ($Username in $UserList) `
{ 
set-casmailbox -identity $UserName `
-OWAEnabled $false `
-POPEnabled $false `
-ActiveSyncEnabled $false `
-ImapEnabled $false
}

Open in new window

Sorry, I can't give a solid answer. I tried to dive into error handling with one script since starting Powershell in December. Take a look at these links:

Sorry I am a novice in powershell programming. I could not make out the correct code to print the logs. I will wait and see, if some once can help me with the codes.

Maybe rethink this...
What about just reviewing people without OWAEnabled once it completes?

I think you can do it by adding this to the end of your script:
foreach ($Username in $UserList) `
{
Get-CASMailbox $Username | where { $_.OWAEnabled } | ft DisplayName, OWAEnabled
}
