Exchange 2010 powershell query

I would like to use the Get-CASmailbox command to find out which users have OWA enabled, however, I would like to limit the query to only users who are a member of a specific email distribution group.

Check this one liner, Provide a GroupName
Get-DistributionGroup <GroupName>| Get-DistributionGroupMember | foreach{Get-CASMailbox $_.samaccountname | where OWAEnabled -EQ $True |select Name, SAMAccountName, OWAEnabled, PrimarySMTPAddress}

Open in new window

with that command I get this error...

ForEach-Object : Cannot bind parameter 'FilterScript'. Cannot convert the "OWAEnabled" value of type "System.String" to type "System.Management.Automation.ScriptBlock".

slight modification to Vaseem's script..

Get-DistributionGroupMember "group name"  | Get-CASMailbox | Where-object {$_.owaenabled}

Open in new window

Get-distributiongroupmember returns mail enabled objects. If they are all mailboxes, this shouldn't generate errors. Only issue being it doesn't recurse into subgroups. OWAEnabled is a true/false property, therefore our where-object will return 'true' results.
