Add multiple existing users to exchange 2013

Greetings experts,

I am adding a new Exchange 2013 server to my existing 2008 AD.  I have also added a 2013 AD, but left the level at 2008 for now till I upgrade those servers.

I would like to create users in Exchange using the existing AD users.  I go to the Exch admin center and add users no problem.  I have 300 users and would like to select more than one at a time, is that possible?  When I hit CTL or SHIFT, it will not chose more than one.

so procedure now:  Click + for new users - select browse for existing users.  All AD users pop up, and select one hit OK, Then SAVE.

all users are in the same domain / forest, and are in the same OU.

Thanks for any help,
Kacey

It can only be done through some Shell scripting not through EMC console

Does anyone know the Script?  Is it a simple command that uses the AD settings?

That did it.  Here is the command:

get-user -organizationalunit 'domain/OU Folder' | Where-object{$_.RecipientType -eq "user"} | Enable-Mailbox -database "DB1"
Thank you
