Problem installing BES

Following the post about haow to install 4.1.3, when I try to run the get-mailboxserver command in axchange management shell I get the error:

Add-ExchangeAdministrator : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters
for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the
input and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline

Actually i just tried that and the viewonlyadmin is a org wide may need to drop the scope switch.

Whats the full command you are trying to use?
Are you trying to add receive-as permissions?

get-mailboxserver MyServer | add-exchnageadministrator BESAdmin -role ViewOnlyAdmin

BESAdmin is a mailbox that I have just created (it said create a service account but I assume this meant a mailbox?)
Matthew MillersCommented:
Try the command below, it will do the same thing:
Add-ExchangeAdministrator -Role ViewOnlyAdmin -Identity domain\username -Scope MailServerName
