hi,

i like to disconnect a user from his mailbox and connect his mailbox to other Alias


First i like to save all Data like company, smtp-adress, used database, phone number
custom attribute1 to a csv with columns like
#csv
smtp    database    phonenumber     customerAttribute1,   company


Then i like to hangup the mailbox
Disable-Mailbox -Identity User1 -Database DB01

???? how can i get the information with powershell on which server the database is mounted?

Then i like to add the information like smtp from user1 to user2 from the CSV


How could i manage that?

appreciate for your help


#write infos to a CSV
Get-ADUser -identity user1 -properties * 
Get-Mailbox -Identity user1 -properties Database


Disable-Mailbox -Identity User1 -Database DB01

clean-mailboxdatabase DB01
Get-MailboxStatistics -server SRV2001 | Where {$_.DisconnectDate -ne $null}

Connect-Mailbox -Identity user1 -Database DB01 -User user2
#add data from user1 to user2

CSVDE -f "location of .csv"

this file will have all attributes of all objects in the entire environment ..... with the below you can tell the command what attributes just to capture and just have that data
-L "Attribute, Attribute, etc, etc"

#write infos to a CSV
Get-ADUser -identity user1 | FL
Get-Mailbox -Identity user1 | FL

csvde -f    and if i just want to store the information of only one user?

for example:  i have 2 aliases one with the old mailbox and one without any mailbox

User1, User2

1. User1 store all data like smtp, custom attributes, company, old used database, Membership of any groups and distribution lists,

2. User1 disconnect the   mailbox

3.User2 attach the mailbox from user1 to new alias
4.User2 add the data from point 1 to user2

What you thing could be the best way to do this?

thx

If its just 2 users you can simply use LDP tool a simple and easy to get all info in one place tool .... you can use CSVDE as well but will be some hardwork
