  • Bulk user creation Exchange 2007

    I am looking for some direction in doing a mass creation of users in exchange. These users have not been created in active directory yet. At this point I have an excel spread sheet I was able to get our finance department to dump for me with the following fields I need to populate in exhange.

    First Name Last Name Email Team Leader Location

    I am hoping to use the Team Leader and Location fields to populate custom attributes in exchange so that the users are added to the appropriate dynamic distribution lists. I am also wanting to have the 500ish users created in a seperate OU which I have already created called Support Staff. I have look at sever ways of scripting this in the exchange management shell but have been unable to find a way to have all of it work in one shot.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated

    In one word: Powershell!

    In a few more words, adapt the scripts here:http://exchangepedia.com/2006/11/exc...ent-shell.html

    You may need to do a couple of passes -- sometimes easier to use Excel's filtering tools rather than trying to Powershell everything
