How to modify the following script to ignore / suppress the warning message and export it to TXT file ?

Hi People,

Can anyone assist me in modifying the powershell script below to accept array of Mailboxes and then removing the warning of the invalid alias ?

$DGrps = Get-DistributionGroup -ResultSize Unlimited -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -WarningAction SilentlyContinue
ForEach ($DGrp in $DGrps) {
	.\enumerate_groups.ps1 $DGrp.get_DisplayName() -showTree
}

Open in new window


my current result is as follows:

Group Name:  Payment - FRAUD COMMITTEE
WARNING: Object domain.com/Exchange 2003/Distribution Lists/Payment - FRAUD COMMITTEE has been corrupted and it is in an inconsistent state. The following validation errors have occurred:
WARNING: "Payment - FRAUD COMMITTEE" is not valid for Alias. Valid values are: Strings formed with characters from a to z (uppercase or lowercase), digits from 0 to 9, !, #, $, %, &, ', *, +, -, /, =, ?, ^, _, `, {, |, } or ~. One or more periods may be embedded in an alias, but each one of them should be preceded and followed by at least one of the other characters. Unicode characters from U+00A1 to U+00FF are also valid in an alias, but they will be mapped to a best-fit US-ASCII string in the email address which is generated from such an alias.

Try this:

$WarningPreference = 'SilentlyContinue' #See more about WarningPreference type Get-help *warning*
$DGrps = Get-DistributionGroup -ResultSize Unlimited -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -WarningAction SilentlyContinue
ForEach ($DGrp in $DGrps) {
	.\enumerate_groups.ps1 $DGrp.get_DisplayName() -showTree
}
