Using Powershell / Exchange 2010 SP2
Is there a way that I can copy calendar items from one mailbox to another?
I do not want to create multiple calendars. I simply want to copy the calendar items only.
Thanks for your help.

You can try this..

New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox MailboxName -FilePath \\Server\Scripts\USER1.pst -IncludeFolders "Calendar\*"

New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox MailboxName -FilePath \\Server\Scripts\USER1.pst -IncludeFolders "Calendar\*"

by manually:

You can accomplish this using powershell. You will need to export only the calendar items and then import the calendar items to a mailbox specifying the calendar as the target. See example below...

Export Calendar Items
New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox <joe> -IncludeFolders "calendar" -FilePath \\servername\Sharename\joescalendar.pst

Open in new window

*You need to make sure that when you are using the export command you have to specify a Share name. If you simply use a UNC path that does not represent a share it will not work

Import Calendar Items
New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox <sarah> -FilePath \\servername\sharename\joescalendar.pst -TargetRootFolder "Calendar" -IncludeFolders "Calendar"

Open in new window

This will import the calendar items using joescalendar.pst and import them into sarah's calendar.

The command added an additional calendar. It did not replace the existing one.

I manually imported the PST via Outlook.
