How do you create thousands of mail-enabled user accounts and contacts on Exchange 2000 or 2003?
With Exchange 2007 the answer is obvious – use PowerShell!
With Exchange 2000 and 2003 the answer is… – use PowerShell. These systems don’t have native Exchange Management Shell, but WMI and AD cmdlets still give much easier solutions than VBScript and other alternative.
See this forum thread in which someone is providing PowerShell one-liners he used to create and mail-enable 18,000 users and 79,000 contacts.
Talk about productivity gains… 😉
