Powershell, how to use an array(based on csv) to set attributes on specific maildatabases


I am struggling with an Powershell script.

What i am trying to achieve is to set the customattribute1 to the same as the database name as exported.

What I have is :

get-mailboxdatabase -server "mailserver" | Select-Object name | Sort-Object name | Export-Csv c:\scripts\database.csv
Wait-Event -Timeout 15
$database=Import-Csv c:\scripts\database.csv
get-mailbox -database ($database) -filter {customattribute1 -eq $null} | set-mailbox -customattribute1 ($database)

What i want is that the list (with 16 entries) is read line by line and setting the appropriate custom attribute.

any suggestions ?

Try This

$Databases = get-mailboxdatabase -server "mailserver" | Select name | Sort name

ForEach ($Database in $Databases) {Get-mailbox -database $database.name -filter {customattribute1 -eq $null} | set-mailbox -customattribute1 $database.name}
