  • moving inboxes to .pst and removing users in AD

    Quick question, Windows AD (2), win server 12 & 08, Exch 2013 on win serv 12, all patched up and working.

    Want to migrate old users that no longer with the company to .pst files and then remove them from the AD for good. Did a little research and this might be my answer:

    PST:
    New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox Kweku -FilePath "\\SERVER01\PSTFileShare\Kweku_Archive.pst" -IsArchive

    remove:
    Remove-Mailbox -Identity "John Rodman" -Permanent $true

    after all that I will have a copy of the old users inbox as a .pst then the old user will be removed for good from the AD.

    any suggestions?

    sounds about right

    remember that PSTs are clunky and unreliable thjough.. and also not easily searchable if you need legal holds etc
