New-MailboxImportRequest

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other. Use the New-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet to begin the process of importing a .pst file to a mailbox or archive. You can create more than one mailbox import request per mailbox and each mailbox import request must have a unique name. Microsoft Exchange automatically generates up to 10 unique names for a mailbox import request. However, to create more than 10 import requests for a mailbox, you need to specify a unique name when creating the import request, or you can remove existing import requests with the Remove-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet before starting a new import request with the default request \MailboxImportX (where X = 0-9). By default, the import checks for duplication of items and doesn't copy the data from the .pst file into the mailbox or archive if a matching item exists in the target mailbox or target archive. This cmdlet is available only in the Mailbox Import Export role, and by default, that role isn't assigned to a role group. To use this cmdlet, you need to add the Mailbox Import Export role to a role group (for example, to the Organization Management role group). For more information, see the "Add a role to a role group" section in Manage role groups (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj657480.aspx). For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Description

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

You need to grant the following permission to the group Exchange Trusted Subsystem to the network share where you want to export or import PST files:

  • To import PST files from the share: Read permission

  • To save exported PST files to the share: Read/Write permission.

If you don't grant this permission, you will receive an error message stating that Exchange is unable to establish a connection to the PST file on the network share.

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-MailboxImportRequest -Mailbox Ayla -FilePath \\SERVER01\PSTFiles\Recovered.pst -TargetRootFolder "RecoveredFiles" -IncludeFolders "#Inbox#"

This example imports a recovered .pst file on SERVER01 into the user Ayla's primary mailbox. Only data in the .pst file's Inbox is imported. The data is imported into the RecoveredFiles folder of the target mailbox for Ayla.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

New-MailboxImportRequest User2 -FilePath \\server\share\User1.pst -IsArchive -TargetRootFolder /

This example imports a .pst file into Kweku's archive folder. The TargetRootFolder isn't specified; therefore, content is merged under existing folders and new folders are created if they don't already exist in the target folder structure.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Dir \\SERVER01\PSTshareRO\Recovered\*.pst | %{ New-MailboxImportRequest -Name RecoveredPST -BatchName Recovered -Mailbox $_.BaseName -FilePath $_.FullName -TargetRootFolder SubFolderInPrimary}

This example imports all of the .pst files on a shared folder. Each .pst file name is named after a corresponding user's alias. The command creates an import request for all the .pst files and imports the data into the matching mailbox.

Optional Parameters

-AcceptLargeDataLoss

The AcceptLargeDataLoss switch specifies the request should continue even if a large number of items in the source mailbox can't be copied to the target mailbox. You need to use this switch if you set either the BadItemLimit or LargeItemLimit parameters to a value of 51 or higher. Otherwise, the command will fail.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-AssociatedMessagesCopyOption

The AssociatedMessagesCopyOption parameter specifies whether associated messages are copied when the request is processed. Associated messages are special messages that contain hidden data with information about rules, views, and forms. By default, associated messages are copied. This parameter accepts the following values:

  • DoNotCopy: The associated messages aren't copied.

  • MapByMessageClass: This option finds the corresponding associated message by looking up the MessageClass attribute of the source message. If there's an associated message of this class in both source and target folders, it overwrites the associated message in the target. If there isn't an associated message in the target, it creates a copy in the target.

  • Copy: This option copies associated messages from the source to the target. If the same message type exists both in the source and the target location, these associated messages are duplicated. This is the default option.

Content filtering doesn't apply to associated messages.

-AzureStatusPublishEndpointInfo

This parameter is available only in the cloud-based service.

PARAMVALUE: String

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-BadItemLimit

The BadItemLimit parameter specifies the maximum number of bad items that are allowed before the request fails. A bad item is a corrupt item in the source mailbox that can't be copied to the target mailbox. Also included in the bad item limit are missing items. Missing items are items in the source mailbox that can't be found in the target mailbox when the request is ready to complete.

Valid input for this parameter is an integer or the value unlimited. The default value is 0, which means the request will fail if any bad items are detected. If you are OK with leaving a few bad items behind, you can set this parameter to a reasonable value (we recommend 10 or lower) so the request can proceed. If too many bad items are detected, consider using the New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to attempt to fix corrupted items in the source mailbox, and try the request again.

If you set this value to 51 or higher, you also need to use the AcceptLargeDataLoss switch. Otherwise, the command will fail.

Type:Unlimited
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-BatchName

The BatchName parameter specifies a descriptive name for importing a batch of mailboxes. You can use the name in the BatchName parameter as a string search when you use the Get-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-CompletedRequestAgeLimit

The CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter specifies how long the request will be kept after it has completed before being automatically removed. The default value of the CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter is 30 days.

Type:Unlimited
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf

Because you can have multiple import requests per mailbox, Exchange precedes the name with the mailbox's alias. For example, if you create an import request for a user's mailbox that has the alias Kweku and specify the value of this parameter as PC1toArchive, the identity of this import request is Kweku\PC1toArchive.

If you don't specify a name using this parameter, Exchange generates up to 10 request names per mailbox, which is MailboxImportX (where X = 0-9). The identity of the request is displayed and searchable as <alias>\MailboxImportX.
