Not a powershell script expert need some help.



trying to create the folder path on the export-mailbox command below so that file filename is journal-06212013.pst   as an example

$today = Get-Date -Format "MMddyyyy"
$Folder = M:\emai\journal\journal-$today.pst



The term 'M:\emai\journal\journal-$today' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, func
tion, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was
included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At C:\Util\testdate.ps1:2 char:41
+ $Folder = M:\emai\journal\journal-$today <<<< 
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (M:\emai\journal\journal-$today:String) []
   , CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Export-Mailbox –Identity journal -PSTFolderPath $folder -StartDate $((Get-date).AddDays(-7)) –EndDate $(Get-date) -DeleteContent

$Folder = "M:\emai\journal\journal-$today.pst"

Here you already added the .pst part.. so you don't have to use "$folder.pst"


Or you can assign the file name without extension
$Folder = "M:\emai\journal\journal-$today"

then use "$folder.pst" in command..
