There are times that you may be asked to export the contents of an Exchange mailbox to a pst. Other times accounts may be being merged and you may need to export the contents of an account being merged and import the mails to the account which will be kept. Before you begin, your account needs to have the Mailbox Import Export role and you need a folder to export to that the Exchange server has rights to. I like to have a drive on an Exchange server itself to use for the exports. Just make sure the Exchange servers... Continue reading

Need to clear C:\ drive space on a Windows Server without the Disk Cleanup tool installed? My go to method: Delete any old user profile directories under C:\Users. Delete temp files - if you type %temp% in the search field it will open Windows Explorer in the folder set as your Windows Temp folder. Delete downloaded Windows patch files. These are generally located under C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and if the patches have already been applied Windows Update is supposed to clear them out but often patches remain there. Need more space? - check out this nice post - Reclaim Space, Windows... Continue reading

If your organization uses lots of shared mailboxes in Exchange (On-Prem or Office 365) one thing you probably do a lot of is grant full access and send as permissions to shared mailboxes. Being a busy admin, I like one liner scripts and shortcuts. I decided to use Excel's concatenate function and a really simple spreadsheet to automate adding users to have rights to shared maiboxes. Instructions: Add your values to Mailbox Alias and User Alias and drag down script result field. Select and copy the results from the results column. Then open Exchange Management Console and paste in all... Continue reading

A company I worked for had been using a 3rd party tool to manage rooms and resources and decided to move all their rooms to Exchange. Great decision, as it makes sense to take advantage of Exchange and Outlook's integrated calendaring. Why pay extra to manage rooms scheduling when Exchange does it so well? I found myself needing to make hundreds of rooms for multiple locations across the globe - time for PowerShell and the Exchange Management Shell! These scripts were written for Exchange 2010 but they would work in newer versions of on-premise Exchange and Exchange 365 as well.... Continue reading

I have had a lot of Kindle e ink devices. I started with the second generation. I have a Kindle keyboard, and a Paperwhite first generation. Recently my Paperwhite updated itself and I now have the Freetime parental controls app on it. I looked it over and it looks like it will be great for my 9 and 10 year old boys. So I wanted to know if any of my older Kindles will run it too. I googled but my best friend Google didn't know. So I did an Amazon support chat and Denise gave me the scoop. Since...

Having well labeled cabling can be a life saver for a System Admin. There's few things more frustrating than having mystery cabling and when you have a problem you don't know which port on the switch a particular piece of equipment is plugged into. At the last large company I worked for they has a wonderful cable labeling scheme where each cable would be labelled with the path it took including server, rack or cabinet, row, and port it was coming from and going to. I just purchased a Brother P-touch PT-2030 for labeling. I will use TZeFX Flexible Laminated... Continue reading
