Import ProxyAddresses attribute into ADUsers

Hi there,

does anyone know how to import ProxyAddresses attribute into AD users?

I have found a way to export them. Command bellow will export ProxyAddresses attribute for all users in OU named Migration, into csv file.

 [PS] C:\>Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase 'ou=Migration,dc=test,dc=com' -Properties proxyaddresses | select name, @{L=”ProxyAddresses”;E={$_.ProxyAddresses –join “;”}} | Export-Csv -Path c:\1\proxyaddresses.csv -NoTypeInformation

Now, I have a problem how to import them, in another forest for some users. Since the csv file contains filed  Name, then import should be done in a way to match Name in csv with Name (Display Name) of users in another forest.

Any idea? I have found few articles but no luck so far.

Regards,

Maybe there is another way to do this.
Since all users should have ProxyAddresses in format SMTP:first_name.last_name@domain.com maybe I can get script to create that address for every user in specific OU?

Anyone got that? :)

Hi,

I have decided to use solution from http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Powershell/Q_28230622.html 

Just will edit *.scv to hold username and will use command

GC C:\proxy.csv | % {
Set-ADUser $_ -Add @{ProxyAddresses="SMTP:$_@mydomain.org"}
}

Thanks.
