Are you wanting to Export user mailboxes to PST for a particular OU?

Please provide more detail.

Yes.  The users who left the organization will be disabled. These disabled users will be moved to a OU called disabled. So the .PST of the users in the disabled OU has to be archived on a centralized location. I want to write a script for archiving the .pst files of the users on the ou called Disabled. Thanks

What verison of Exchange are you using?

You can use something like the script below to accomplish this...

$Users = get-mailbox -OrganizationalUnit <ou here>
foreach ($User in $Users) {Export-Mailbox -Identity $User -PSTFolderPath "c:\pstfiles" -BadItemLimit 1000000 -confirm:$false}

Open in new window

Hi Will Thanks a lot
What is the extension to be saved, is it .ps? or.bat file

Also please let me know do I need to provide just the OU name or the distinguished name of the OU.....Thanks

You can copy and past this in to a text file and save the file extension to .PS1. You will need to run this script in the Exchange Management shell (.\scriptname.ps1)

Also for the OU you need to use the following syntax below...

OU=disabled,DC=domain,DC=com

If your OU that is called disabled is not at the top level you need to use the same syntax and add the additional OU structure.

The below example illustrates having Users are the toplevel OU and disabled OU underneith.
OU=disabled,OU=testou,DC=domain,DC=com
