Hi All,

I've got an odd problem, im building a front end for a client to be able to manage mailboxes, public folders and so on..

in powershell i can execute the command "Get-PublicFolder \ -recurse" and see all of the folders

however.. when i try to fire the command from i get the following message:

"You can't perform this operation because public folder database 'PublicFolders' isn't mounted. Please mount it and try again."

The DB is Definately mounted!!!

Anyone seen this before?

It seemd that account used to run commands does not have sufficient rights on the server/databse or server is not reachable from the system where command was run.
