Quick Script to Enable Archive Mailbox

Hi folks,

Just wanted to share with you a quick script on how to enable archive mailbox into the same mailbox database as the user mailbox.

The code is as simple as this one

Set-ADServerSettings -ViewEntireForest:$true
$Mbx = Get-Mailbox user1@contoso.com
Enable-Mailbox -Archive -Identity $Mbx.Alias -ArchiveDatabase $Mbx.Database

Any other attribute (UPN or email address) can be used as Identity value. I used Alias because it's still a parameter you expect to be a unique one in your Exchange environment.

You can potentially extend it by importing your list of mailboxes from CSV file thus making this working for bulk archive mailboxes enabling.
