Hey all, I have a problem I am hoping someone here can help. I have a Exchange server 2007 server, and I need to add the user "terry" as an owner to all the pubic folders we have (around 100).

I ran the "Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\customer clients\customer1" -User terry -AccessRights Owner" command and it works, but I dont want to have to run the command against every single public folder, as that would take forever.

Can someone tell me a better command to use to assign her the owner role on all public folders?

In the exchange powershell goto the Scripts folder under Exchange Server:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Scripts

There are a lot of helpful scripts. the one you need is AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1

.\\AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 -TopPublicFolder "\\xxxwhere to startxxx" -User "xxx_user_xxx" -Permissions Owner

or try this:

Get-PublicFolder –Identity “a publicfolder name” –Recurse | Add-PublicFolderClientPermission –User username –AccessRights Owner
