I need a PS script to remotely copy local PST files to network and remotely reconfigure Outlook to use the PST on the network
Posted on 2014-10-14
In our environment we want to store users' Outlook PST files on the network because we do not backup the local workstations. We know there are some workstations where Outlook is using local PSTs. I got a Powershell script to find local Outlook PST files in EE question Q_28533359. This found many workstations with local PSTs. Now I am hoping it is possible to use a Powershell script to remotely copy these to the network home directory for the user and to configure Outlook to use the PST file on the network instead of on the local workstation. I realize this may require running the script locally with the user whose PST we want to move logged on but if it is possible to do remotely without the user logged on that would be preferable. If this is only possible with VB script I would accept that but would prefer Powershell.
