Gather ActiveSync Device Information From Exchange 2007

October 21st, 2009 by Mitchell Lintzen

To gather a complete list of mobile devices that are connecting to your Exchange 2007 Client Access Servers we need to retrieve the full list of mailboxes and then pipe that to the Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics commmand as such:

$mob_devices = get-mailbox -ResultSize unlimited |%{ Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -mailbox $_}

That command will take a long time depending on how large your organization is. Then we’ll need to iterate through each device and weed out those devices that are no longer attempting to sync with Exchange. I’ve found that looking back 14 days should be enough time to eliminate the stale partnerships.

foreach($device in $mob_devices){
if((get-date).adddays(-14) -le $device.lastsyncattempttime){
$smtp = $device.identity.smtpaddress
$name = (get-mailbox $smtp).name
$type = $device.devicetype
“$smtp    $name    $type” | out-file -append ./mob_devices.txt
}
}

The last line outputs the SMTP address, user name, and device type to a text file. Have fun!

iTunes Management With Powershell

October 7th, 2009 by Mitchell Lintzen

I recently converted from Windows Mobile to iPhone and I needed to figure out a way to manage my mobile MP3 library. With Windows Mobile I used Powershell and accessed the file system on my Windows Mobile device as a USB flash drive. To manipulate playlists on the iPhone I tried a few applications such as Winamp and MediaMonkey but they would not let me apply the time & genre based logic that I needed. So I found iTunesLibraryEditor which allowed me to access and modify iTunes playlists by instantiating the iTunesLibraryEditor object as such:

[system.reflection.assembly]::loadfile(“D:work1Sync-iPhoneiTunesLibraryEditorituneslibraryeditor.dll”)
$lib = new-object ituneslibraryeditor.ituneslibrary

Check out the code in my Powershell script library: BinaryAgent Powershell Repository. Look for “Sync-iPhone.zip” in the /Sync-iPhone/ directory. Hope you find it useful.
