Powershell: Exchange 2010

Posted on 2013-12-05

Last Modified: 2014-05-01
I have been using powershell to create AD Users and Mailboxes, similar to below:

New-MailUser -Name Bob -FirstName Bob -LastName Smith -ExternalEmailAddress
bsmith@myco.com -UserPrincipalName bob@myco.com
-OrganizationalUnit myco.com

Am I able to take it one step further and add to multiple security groups / distribution lists as well?  If so, could you provide a quick example?

Thanks

To add a user to the dirstribution group you would use a command line the one below.

Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "Group Name" -Member bob@myco.com

You cant really append it to the first command because it is a seperate action. You need to create the user account before it can be added to any groups.

You can just make copy of existing user having same group membership from active directory and then create mailbox either from shell or EMC
It is the easiest way if user needs to be part of bunch of groups
