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?

Hi Mary Clifford,
Please check the tool from Technet for bulk creation.

Give this a try...

EXAMPLE CSV FOR USERS AND MAILBOXES
MyUPN,MyAlias,MyName,MyFirstName,MyLastName,MyDisplayName,MyPrimarySmtpAddress
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
Test5@mydomain.com,Test5User,Test5 User,Test5,User,Test5 User,test5@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" }
