hi,

My problem is to create a hash-table to set the correct custom attributes.

Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 'Q' -CustomAttribute12 'ER' -CustomAttribute11 'EMC' -SingleItemRecoveryEnabled $true -Identity $User.userid

Open in new window


The C_attribute 3 related to the company attribute.  1 company should set to value "D"
1 company to value "F" all other to "Q"

The C_attribute 12 should set for about 6 different companies to "ZE" for 3 companies
to KU and to all other to "ER".

$compattrib3 = @{

 "contoso" = ''D"
 "contoso2" = "F"
 "All other" = 'Q'
 
$compattrib12 = @{
"contoso" = ''ZE"
 "contoso2" = "KU"
 "All other" = "ER"

Thank you so much for your help.


Mandy!

$compattrib3 = @{
"contoso" =  "D"
"contoso2" = "F"
"All other" = "Q"
}

$compattrib12 = @{
"contoso" = "ZE"
"contoso2" = "KU"
"All other" = "ER"
}

Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 $compattrib3."All other" -CustomAttribute12 $compattrib12."All other" -CustomAttribute11 'EMC' -SingleItemRecoveryEnabled $true -Identity $User.userid

So, you've already got the hash table, you just need If statements (or possibly a Switch) to check for all the possibilities and execute the Set-Mailbox command with the different values accordingly.  An example is shown below.

If ($user.company -eq "EMC")
{
    Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 $compattrib3."contoso" -CustomAttribute12 $compattrib12."contoso" -CustomAttribute11 'EMC' -SingleItemRecoveryEnabled $true -Identity $User.userid
}
ElseIf ($user.company -eq "LDE" -or $user.company -eq "DMB" -or $user.company -eq "REX")
{
    Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 $compattrib3."contoso2" -CustomAttribute12 $compattrib12."contoso2" -SingleItemRecoveryEnabled $true -Identity $User.userid
}
Else
{
    Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute3 $compattrib3."All other" -CustomAttribute12 $compattrib12."All other" -SingleItemRecoveryEnabled $true -Identity $User.userid
}
