Need some help with this

We use exchange online with office 365 I need to verify that a particular user has fullaccess permission on every mailbox.  I can see what mailboxes he has access to with this:

Get-MailBox | Get-MailboxPermission -User "user@domain.com" | export-csv c:\temp\results.csv

What I need however is the opposite, I need to see what mailboxes he doesn't have access to.

Thanks!

This will result in all mailbox objects this particular user does not have access to:
get-mailbox | % { if (Get-MailboxPermission $_ -User user@domain.com) {} else { $_ }}

Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'Identity'. Cannot convert value "smith, Mike" to type
"Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter". Error: "Cannot convert hashtable to an object of the following type:
Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter. Hashtable-to-Object conversion is not supported in restricted language mode or
a Data section."

Has to be a O365 issue, because it works with my MSX2007.
Let's try by being more specific:
get-mailbox | % { if (Get-MailboxPermission -Identity $_,Identity -User user@domain.com) {} else { $_ }}

Open in new window

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Actually tried that already!  Doesn't work-

new error:

Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'Identity'. Cannot convert the "System.Collections.ArrayList" value of type
"System.Collections.ArrayList" to type "Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter".

Sorry, a typo. Needs to be dot instead of comma ...
get-mailbox | % { if (Get-MailboxPermission -Identity $_.Identity -User user@domain.com) {} else { $_ }}

Open in new window
