Does anyone have a powershell script that I can copy and use for mailbox creation and AD account.  I did an export of the mailboxes to get the csv file and will replace with new users I have about 350 to add so would like to use command to take care of that task?

Give this a try...

EXAMPLE CSV FOR USERS AND MAILBOXES

Test3@mydomain.com,Test3User,Test3 User,Test3,User,Test3 User,test3@mydomain.com
Test4@mydomain.com,Test4User,Test4 User,Test4,User,Test4 User,test4@mydomain.com

Test6@mydomain.com,Test6User,Test6 User,Test6,User,Test6 User,test6@mydomain.com

Open in new window


EXAMPLE COMMANDS TO CREATE USERS AND MAILBOXES

This first command will prompt you to enter a password that will be used to set all users with the second command ...
$MyPassword = Read-Host "Enter password" -AsSecureString

Open in new window


This command will take the contents of the CSV file and create users with mailboxes...
Import-Csv "C:\MyNewUsers.csv" | foreach-object { New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName $_.MyUPN -Alias $_.MyAlias -Name $_.MyName -FirstName $_.MyFirstName -LastName $_.MyLastName -DisplayName $_.MyDisplayName -OrganizationalUnit "mydomain.local/My New Users OU" -Password $MyPassword -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $true -PrimarySmtpAddress $_.MyPrimarySmtpAddress -Database "DATABASENAME" }
