Hi,

I was following this article:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/manjubn/archive/2012/01/14/holiday-calendar-and-how-import-to-mailboxes.aspx  to try to import holidays into all of my user accounts in Exchange 2010.  I was able to create a new calendar, add the holidays observed by my company, export it and it worked fine.  Then I used Exfolders to export Calendar folder permissions in order to preserve them since the importing may modify some settings.  That also worked great!  However, when I try to import the holiday calendar to mailboxes on specific databases, the command:    
 Get-Mailbox -Database "DB1" | New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox "User13" -FilePath \\server\PSTFileShare\HolidayCalendar2014.pst does not work.  I get the following error:

Is there a way to sort it out so that I can do this bulk operation?

Thanks,

Looking into the article you provided as example, command that you run is not the same that the one from the article
You use: Get-Mailbox -Database "DB1" | New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox "User13" -FilePath \\server\PSTFileShare\HolidayCalendar2014.pst

And in the article is: Get-mailbox –Database –DB03 | New-MailboxImportRequest –Mailbox “Dave01” -FilePath \\ Nyc-ex2\PST\HolidayCalendar.PST –IncludedFolders "#Calendar#"
Leaving this aside that command is doing this for one mailbox

To do this for all mbx from one DB it should be
1) this should work as parameter -Mailbox, Accept pipeline input
Get-Mailbox -Database "DB1" | New-MailboxImportRequest -FilePath \\server\PSTFileShare\HolidayCalendar2014.pst
2) or like this: Get-Mailbox -Database "DB1" | % {New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox $_.alias -FilePath \\server\PSTFileShare\HolidayCalendar2014.pst}
