PowerShell has long been the number one tool in the Exchange Admin’s arsenal, however, when embarking on an Office 365 migration a number of problems can arise with this tool.

If you’re an organization using Office 365 with a large number of users, you’ll know first-hand the extensive periods of time it takes to gather data or run operations – sometimes this can go on for hours. Also, it doesn’t end there, with the frequent connectivity or session stability issues, things can start looking really ugly.

Optimizing scripts, using implicit remoting and adding robust controls to handle connectivity issues and other errors can certainly help, which we’ve covered in previous webinars – Optimizing PowerShell for large Office 365 tenants, for example. But, there’s only so much we can do with decade-old technology which was designed in a world where the cloud was still only in its infancy of development.

Advances in Exchange Cmdlets

Now, we have the answer to this ongoing problem which was announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019. Microsoft has finally provided us with a solution that addresses most, if not all, the pain points we anticipate when using Exchange Online PowerShell.

The new REST-based cmdlets are faster and much more reliable than their counterparts, and are backward-compatible for the most part. Since they’re now GA, you can start using them today for adapting your scripts and workflows.

To help you get started with the new Exchange cmdlets, my fellow MVP Ingo Gegenwarth and I will be hosting a Quadrotech webinar on February 5, 2020.

Join us to get up to speed with the new developments, see the REST-based cmdlets in action and find out how they compare with the old cmdlets. In our discussion, we will be sharing real-life usage scenarios, observed benefits, helpful advice, and deep technical details. And, as always, we will also take a closer look into what’s currently missing, causes problems or needs further improvements.
