Hi,

exchange using difrent format then PST. If user have localy some PST files they are not on exchange and you must add them manualy like before.

If you reinstaled or deleted account simple add it again.

here are some more

thank you. I guess after exporting them to a pst file on a network share, there would be no harm to actual mailbox ?? It should not affect the way it works now ?

thanks

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox name.sirname -FilePath \\192.168.178.32\c$\file.pst


What is wrong with this path?

folder files.pst has granted with Exchange account with full permission.

Create a Shared folder on whatever that server is and can you ping that IP and access share with that IP ??

Why dont you try with the NBIOS name of the server instead of the IP address .... something like lets say i create a Share folder name "PST" on ABC server so the the filepath would be like

-FilePath \\ABC\PST\UserAlias.pst

don't use the admin shares c$ d$ etc... share the folder itself and make sure to assign as shared permission (not NTFS) everyone full control

Not really, all the sugestions were good. Best one was yours. However, permissions needs to be also given from permission tab in shared.
As I am also new this customer, I noticed that most of the shares were shared from another domain where there is trust enabled.

In this case, I followed your advise and shared in a different disk on exchange itself and also  
I was creating a directory not a file, for examle \\server01\usera is enough for a directory and then usera.pst is created itself by the server. What I was doing wrong is creating
\\server01\usersa\usera.pst directory which is wrong because server treats that path as a directory not as a path.... it was me being bit funny so your help are appriciated

thanks
