Script to Extract Mailbox sizes from Exchange 2003

Helping to migrate a customer from 2003 to 2013 (via 2010) I was required to pull of a list of mailbox sizes and couldn’t find a single script that did the trick in one hit- so I’ve stuck together the elements of this (which, for reasons beyond my understanding, outputs to screen- pretty useless) with an out put to text – for ease of reference I’ve posted it here!

On Error Resume Next
Dim cComputerName
Const cWMINameSpace = “root/MicrosoftExchangeV2”
Const cWMIInstance = “Exchange_Mailbox”
cComputerName = “BR-SRV-DC01”
Set objFSO=CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)

Dim strWinMgmts ‘ Connection string for WMI
Dim objWMIExchange ‘ Exchange Namespace WMI object
Dim listExchange_Mailboxs ‘ ExchangeLogons collection
Dim objExchange_Mailbox ‘ A single ExchangeLogon WMI object

‘ Create the object string, indicating WMI (winmgmts), using the
‘ current user credentials (impersonationLevel=impersonate),
‘ on the computer specified in the constant cComputerName, and
‘ using the CIM namespace for the Exchange provider.
strWinMgmts = “winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//”& _
Set objWMIExchange = GetObject(strWinMgmts)
‘ Verify we were able to correctly set the object.
If Err.Number 0 Then
WScript.Echo “ERROR: Unable to connect to the WMI namespace.”

‘ The Resources that currently exist appear as a list of
‘ Exchange_Mailbox instances in the Exchange namespace.
Set listExchange_Mailboxs = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)

‘ Were any Exchange_Mailbox Instances returned?
If (listExchange_Mailboxs.count > 0) Then
‘ If yes, do the following:
‘ Iterate through the list of Exchange_Mailbox objects.
For Each objExchange_Mailbox in listExchange_Mailboxs

‘ Display the value of the Size property.
‘ WScript.echo objExchange_Mailbox.MailboxDisplayName & “,” & objExchange_Mailbox.Size
‘ Add item to file
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(outFile,True)
objFile.Write objExchange_Mailbox.MailboxDisplayName & “,” & objExchange_Mailbox.Size & vbCrLf
‘ objFile.Close

‘ If no Exchange_Mailbox instances were returned,
‘ display that.
WScript.Echo “WARNING: No Exchange_Mailbox instances were returned.”
End If
End If
