Hi,

If there are three letters (EMC) stored in the AD under Department, then use the Database  DBEMC0001 to DBEMC0045. If the 3 letters EMC not found then the database parameter not needed. pls see the code.

Also in my code the passwordreset isn't  functional. here is the CSV

UserId,OrderID,Action,Version
Z851037,CX151828001,new,C2010
Z851037,CX151828001,reset,C2010
Z333333,CX151828001,delete,C2010

1.Action=new and C2010=enable then enable 2010 MBX of existing AD-user
2.Action=reset create new password  (not functional dont know why)
3.Action=delete disable Mailbox and write used database to Description

Open in new window



Import-Module activedirectory
ForEach ($Entry in Import-Csv 'c:\import.csv'){} 

  
  If($Entry.Action -like "new") {
  If($Entry.Version -like "C2010") {
######################################################

$DBuser = Get-ADUser -identity $Entry.UserID -Properties department
If ?????? EMC
$db = "DBEMC00$("{0:00}" -f (1..45 | Get-random))"
Enable-Mailbox -Identity $Entry.UserId -Database $db

else
Enable-Mailbox -Identity $Entry.UserId
##########################################################            
  } # end if create

  If($Entry.Action -like "delete") {         
   Disable-Mailbox -Identity $entry.UserID 
        } # end if delete

  If($Entry.Action -like "reset") { 

$NewPassword = $Entry.UserId.Insert(5,"!").Insert(3,"k").Remove(0, 1).Insert(0,"P") 
write-host -ForegroundColor yellow -backgroundcolor blue "The new password called $newpassword"
Set-ADAccountPassword -Identity $Entry.UserId -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "$newpassword" -Force)	  
}    

#set decription
	   
$desccurrent = (Get-ADUser -identity $Entry.userid -Properties Description).Description
$desccurrent = "{0}, OrderID: {1}, DB: {2}" -f $entry.orderid	, $descnew, $db 
set-aduser -identity $Entry.userid -description $desccurrent

I think this is what you are asking:
...
            $DBuser = (Get-User -identity $Entry.UserID).department
            If ($DBuser -like "*EMC*") {
                $db = "DBEMC00$("{0:00}" -f (1..45 | Get-random))"
                Enable-Mailbox -Identity $Entry.UserId -Database $db
                }
            else {
                Enable-Mailbox -Identity $Entry.UserId
                } 

Open in new window

...

and

...
        If($Entry.Action -like "reset") { 
            $NewPassword = $Entry.UserId.Insert(5,"!")
            $NewPassword = $newPassword.Insert(3,"k")
            $NewPassword = $newPassword.Remove(0, 1)
            $newPassword = $newPassword.Insert(0,"P")          
            write-host -ForegroundColor yellow -backgroundcolor blue "The new password called $newpassword"
            Set-ADAccountPassword -Identity $Entry.UserId -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText $newPassword -Force)	  
            } 

Open in new window

you got it. The only thing to keep in mind is the length of the username/id. If it's less than 5 you'll get an error.

you can pad the username or change the first insert to something less than 5.
