Rolling out Exchange 2007 to all students
We have 1000 exisiting students that i will be giving Exchange mailboxes this year. I am just wondering what tools are available for rolling this out.
They have Mailenable web mail at the moment which will be ditched and i will not be offering to move any exisitng mail.
New students - i think i can script in, but i am not sure how to give existing students mailboxes as simply as possible.
Anyone have ideas how to go about this?
Exchange 2007 Bulk User Import
If you want to bulk create mailbox's for users on ad in exchange 2007 using the exchange management client you will first need to install exchange 2007 sp1. Then you can create a new mailbox, select all the existing users, apply settings, job done.
Follow this guide for help:
Exchange 2007 SP1 Mailbox Management Features - Part 3: Mailbox-enabling Users in bulk using the Exchange Management Console
If you dont have sp1 installed on exchange 2007 you will need to create a power shell scritp to create the mailbox's, iv gone this before at another college, just when exchange came out, real pain!!!.
Im now looking into moving our students over to exchange 2007, so i will be looking to create an extra 10-15K mailbox's.
