Hi All

I have an exchange 2010, 2008 server on which the EMC is showing that we need 3 enterprise cal licences, is there anyway to identify which accounts are requiring the 3 enterprise licences?

Thanks in advance

I've been playing around with this in powershell.
I've hacked up the script from this Technet page.

Save the content of the code box below in a file e.g. c:\tmp\CALstatus.ps1

Open the Exchange Management Shell and run the script like so to give a count of Enterprise features being used (I'm getting everybody using the Archive feature so that might need to be removed from the script);

[PS] C:\> c:\tmp\CALstatus.ps1

To get a list of users that make up those numbers use the ShowUsers switch e.g.

[PS] C:\> c:\tmp\CALstatus.ps1 -ShowUsers

Param (
	[switch]$ShowUsers = $false

$Users = @()

$UMUsers = 0
$ArchiveUsers = 0
$RetUsers = 0
$MCFUsers = 0
$ASUsers = 0

$AllMailboxes = Get-Mailbox

$AllMailboxes.Identity | foreach {
$Mailbox = Get-Mailbox $_

	if ($Mailbox.UMEnabled)
		$Users += ($Mailbox.Identity).Name

	if ($Mailbox.ArchiveGuid -ne [System.Guid]::Empty)
		$Users += ($Mailbox.Identity).Name

	if ($Mailbox.RetentionPolicy -ne $null)
		$Users += ($Mailbox.Identity).Name

	if ($Mailbox.ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy -ne $null)
		$ManagedFolderLinks = (Get-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy $Mailbox.ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy).ManagedFolderLinks
		foreach ($FolderLink in $ManagedFolderLinks)
			$ManagedFolder = Get-ManagedFolder $FolderLink

			if ($ManagedFolder.FolderType -eq "ManagedCustomFolder")
				$Users += ($Mailbox.Identity).Name

	$CASMailbox = Get-CASMailbox $_
	if ($CASMailbox.ActiveSyncEnabled -and ($CASMailbox.ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -ne $null))
		$ASPolicy = Get-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy $CASMailbox.ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy

		if (($ASPolicy.AllowDesktopSync -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowStorageCard -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowCamera -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowTextMessaging -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowWiFi -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowBluetooth -ne "Allow") -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowIrDA -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowInternetSharing -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowRemoteDesktop -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowPOPIMAPEmail -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowConsumerEmail -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowBrowser -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowUnsignedApplications -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.AllowUnsignedInstallationPackages -eq $False) -or
		($ASPolicy.ApprovedApplicationList -ne $null) -or
		($ASPolicy.UnapprovedInROMApplicationList -ne $null))
			$Users += ($Mailbox.Identity).Name
