hello, we have this script that works perfect on exchange 2010 to add additional SMTP alias, however this does not work on exchange 2007.

can someone modify this so it will work on 2007?

thanks in advance:

Import-Csv alias-add-var-gen1.csv | % {
$user = Get-Mailbox $_.SMTP 
$user.emailAddresses += $_.newsmtp
Set-Mailbox $user -emailAddresses $user.emailAddresses
}

Hi

Except that + sign in line 3 it looks ok, have no exchange2007 anymore to check but can imagine you differ in PS versions, maybe update powershell on the 2007 box.
(PS C:\> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion)

Cheers!

I cannot detect an issue either, so we need the error message, as requested by Learnctx.
However, I would compress the script slightly:
Import-Csv alias-add-var-gen1.csv | % {
  Get-Mailbox $_.SMTP | Set-Mailbox -emailAddresses @($user.emailAddresses)+$_.newsmtp
}

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
