Is it still possible to mail enable users in 2010 using VBScript.

I know all about powershell, but the VBScript is the limitation due to the current provisioning system/process.

Thank you.

I wouldn't know, never use VBS anymore.

But here's an idea: Why don't you just use VBS to call PowerShell.exe and a script ?

Then you can script whatever you want Exchange wise in Powershell, and call that via the VBS n your provisioning system.

I'm betting it would pay off :)

Thanks for your observation. Been there done that. VBScript is the limitation due to the current provisioning system/process.

Wouldn't one have to install "Powershell.exe" and the Exchange Management Tools to get the cmdlets to invoke? Something the client is not will to do at this time.

So can this still be done in VBScript as before? If it cannot then I have legitimation reasons to push back and talk about alternatives. If it can still be done in VBscript I do not.

nasdaqprophet,
 
I am a little confused as to your requirements! Are you saying that you want the script to run from any machine even one without the Exchange management tools?? The management tools are required in order to run an exchange task.

2010 Management tools are not required.

http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2009/05/19/451366.aspx

"You can leverage the remote PowerShell capabilities that are built into Exchange Server 2010 by using either the 32-bit version or 64-bit version of PowerShell 2.0 (in other words, when leveraging remote PowerShell, the system where you launch PowerShell doesn't require the management tools to be installed as all cmdlets are executing on the server you are remoting)."

Because the provision server is 2k3 and x32 we can't install 2010 management utilities and wanted to use the existing vbscript processes.

I finally had some time to tested with vbscript and was able to get it to work. Does not appear this is possible based on some reading.

I will try remoting from powershell to a 2010 server as suggested in this thread.
