Default Scripting using Powershell and the BESUserAdminClient

Please Login to Remove!

I would like to create a simple script that will pull stats for all of my users from the BES. I have the BESUserAdminClient installed but I can't figure out how to call it from PowerShell (that is where I am doing some text parsing).

Has anyone else created a PS script that will use the BESUserAdminClient?

Sorry, I've never used/seen that utility. If it is a regular command-line app (DOS), you can call it directly in PowerShell, but may have to escape certain characters that you pass as arguments. From there, unless it has options to output to a file, what you will see returned to PowerShell are simple strings, that you will need to figure out how to handle. You can maybe post an example here...

I started mucking around with PS and the BESUserAdminClient, but have had problems getting the tool to exit properly from PS (it just stays open):

$psi = new-object System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo("C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit\BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool Client\BESUSerAdminClient.exe");
$psi.UseShellExecute = $false;
$psi.Arguments = "-add -u or whatever arguments you want to add";
$psi.Domain = "AD Domain";
