I am trying to create a mailnox using EXCDO

I get the following error

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01b6'

Object doesn't support this property or method: 'objMailbox.CreateMailbox'

when I do this

Set objMailbox = Usr
               objMailbox.CreateMailbox "LDAP://"&homeDB
               Set objMailbox = Nothing

works on a test system just not on production, same permissions and everything any ideas.
