I'm trying to import bunch of PSTs into Exchange 2010 using PowerShell and i'm a bit lost, can someone help me with any articles or tips of what I need to look out for/ ensure I have running?

So I"d created a PST at the location c:\pstfiles\user.pst to test importing PSTs into Exchange 2010 via PowerShell.

I"d already installed 64bit outlook on the server, and added import export roles to the account I was using.

I was then using the command "Import-Mailbox –Identity [Username] –PSTFolderPath

c:\pstfiles\user.pst" to import this pst file into [username]"s mailbox.

And hit the following error:

Error was found for XXX because: Error occurred in the step: Approving object. An unknown error has occurred., error code: -2147221219 + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (0:Int32) [Import-Mailbox], RecipientTaskException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CFFD629B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.ImportMailbox
I'm struggling to find information on what this means

Hi Mike,

Glad that you take note on the SP1 mentioned on the subject. (I overlooked this).

Just to check with you, if the error code: -2147221219 appears on the server. The server was not patched to SP1 yet, we have applied work around as mentioned by korneel, am i right?

Thanks very much for your help MT and Mike, I had to postpone the project for a few weeks (I really didn't expect it to be so tricky! - I am a Powershell novice :)) but I am now back on it. The articles you suggested don't help with errors (I'm guessing I've missed something with my setup that would mean the scripts would just run). After a bit more digging, I found this site that went over much the same process as the ones you have suggested but included some of the errors I encountered: http://sysadmin-talk.org/2010/08/how-to-import-pst-files-into-exchange-2010-the-manual-way/.
