hi,
with script below i like to create, delete or reset password of new exchange user

to the description of user to delete
and only the orderID to user i create.
The database used i've to read from ad attribute. The description
i like to add to existing description.
See code in ####

ForEach ($User in  Import-Csv  "c:\import.csv") {    
    If($User.Version -like "M2010") {
        If($User.Action -like "new") {
             # activate Exchange 2010 Mailbox
             Enable-Mailbox -Identity $User.UserID -Database DB0001
        } # end if create
        If($User.action -like "delete") {
             # deactivate Exchange 2010 Mailbox
             Disable-Mailbox -Identity $User.UserID 
########################################
#$descnew = $entry.OrderID	
#$desccurrent = (Get-ADUser -identity $entry.userid -Properties Description).Description
#set-aduser -identity $user.userid -description ($desccurrent+' '+$descnew+' ')
#Read used database from AD
########################################

        } # end if delete
  If($User.Action -like "reset") {
       #If($User.Version -like "reset") {
       # reset password of AD-Account
Import-Module activedirectory
$NewPassword = $user.UserId.Insert(5,"$").Insert(3,"p").Remove(0, 1).Insert(0,"C")
write-host The new password is $newpassword
Set-ADAccountPassword -Identity $user.userid -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "$newpassword" -Force)
