PST Import And Export Exchange Server 2013

In this KB I’ll show you how to Export and Import PST files to and from Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2010.

The requirements to export \ import mailboxes are:

1. Assigning mailbox Import Export Role

2. Share folder to export \ Import the PST files

Before we can Import \ Export mailbox from or to Exchange we need to have the right permissions to do so, the cmdlet below will give the user that is doing the task the permission to perform mailbox Import \ Export.

New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role “Mailbox Import Export” -User corp\adminsd

Once you assign the permission you can Export the mailbox using the cmdlet below:

New-MailboxexportRequest -Mailbox jhon -FilePath “\\server\pst\jhon.pst”

To import a mailbox use:

New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox jhon -FilePath “\\server\pst\jhon.pst”

Starting with Exchange 2010 you can export \ import mailboxes directly from Exchange server and there is no need to install Microsoft Outlook.
