I have a CSV file with two columns (name,phone) and I can successfully set the CustomAttribute (below) to the phone number but I cannot find the correct argument to set the business phone and fax?  Is their no argument to call to set these particular fields?

Import-Csv 'phone.csv' | ForEach-Object { Set-Mailbox -Identity $_.name -CustomAttribute15 $_.phone }

Set-Mailbox doesn't have a parameter to add the phone number..

Try..
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-Csv 'phone.csv' | ForEach-Object { Set-ADUser $_.name -officephone $_.phone }

Open in new window

That works fine but I'm trying to update phone number in Exchange 2010 to update GAL.  The AD accounts aren't linked to user mailbox.

What I mean is that the script will update the active directory phone number but that change isn't reflected in the Exchange Management Console (EMC) for that user mailbox.  If the updated phone number isn't shown in the fax or business phone property boxes in EMC then it's not going to be shown in global address book, which is my goal.

telephoneNumber is the attribute which we are updating using the script, it should reflect in GAL... Can you check in OWA and see if you are able to view the updated number?
