Powershell script help

Powershell script help

Ok I have a vbscript which creates a user account in AD but I have to open exchange management console to create the mailbox for the user.Is there a powerscript that I can run at the end of the vbscript that will enable the mailbox for that user I just created?

RE: Powershell script help

You should be doing everything in PowerShell. No vbscript. You don't mention the version of Exchange, so the method is different. For 2007, you could load the snapin. In 2010, you could use a remote PowerShell session to the Exchange server to create the mailbox.

Let me know which version and we can go from there.

RE: Powershell script help

thanks for your reply 58sniper , sorry I forgot to mention which version of exchange I'm running , I'm running exchange 2010.I think running everything in powershell would be great but it would be alot of work to recreate my user creation script in powershell.
Isn't there a way to call powershell at the end of my vbscript using something like this:

set wshshell=wscript.createobject("wscript.shell")
wshShell.Run "%SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe Enable-Mailbox -Identity 'bjones' -Alias 'Bjones -Database 'fielddb01'?
