upgraded from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010, I had to find a whole new
script, as the old one didn't work.
The inital output leaves a lot to be desired from an automation
standpoint, though I'm sure it's perfectly acceptable to your average
Windows admin. Although VBScript is not completely opaque to me, I do
not know it very well. The transformations required were very easy in
Perl, which I do know. The sanity check and deployment on Linux was
easiest in shell. If I were experienced in VBScript, I would have
handled it without the intermediate step.
I'm going to investigate Mr. Conrad's Perl/LDAP solution, which would be
easy to customize and much less prone to breakage.
