exporting to pst in exchange 2010 environment

We are trying to create pst files from our exchange 2010 sp1. We do not have another server to install on (which would solve my issues I believe). I have a computer with 64 bit OS and Outlook. I have also installed the listed below. I still am not able to export-mailboxes to a folder locally because the error states the server I am connecting to needs Outlook 64 bit version installed. Is there any way around this?

#
Installation of Powershell 2.0
#
Installation of .NET Framework 3.51
#
Installation of Outlook Office 2010 64 Bit (which is currently in CTP release available)
#
Installation of Exchange Server 2010 management tools
#
Create domain membership for this client
#
Logon with an administrative account with Exchange’s full administrative permissions

You can do it from Server itself. Check below article with steps

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/exporting-importing-mailboxes-exchange-server-2010.html

Both GUI and Command lets options are present in 2010

So it is okay to install Outlook 2010 on Exchange 2010, and it is the primary server?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I would recommend to use a separate machine.

If I don't have another server to install it on, do you have any other ideas on how to export emails off of the server?

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
You can install this in your machine also, if you have 64bit OS. Secondly, if you don't have any other machine with 64bit OS. You can still install it on this server also. No such hard and fast rule

I installed it right on the production server and now I'm getting this error:

Exchange 2010 Error error code: -2147221219 when running the Export-Mailbox Command

Try to run powershell as Administrator and check it again.

It does not give me the option to export to pst in GUI?

What service pack you running on 2010 server?

SP1

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
Microsoft removed the Export Mailbox from SP1. My Mistake, I haven't asked you the SP before. Now it is change to
New-MailboxExportRequest

Run powershell as administrator and try again

Thanks for staying around with this.

So should I still keep Outlook 64bit on the production server (I uninstalled it, but can reinstall if needed).

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
With SP1, Outlook is no more required at server end.

TechneutAuthor Commented:
I was wrong, We are not on SP1 for exchange. I am downloading it now which might make my life easier.

Do you know anything I should be aware of when installing SP1?

What is your design? All roles on one server, do you have DAG? If it is standalone server, then steps are straight forward. But before doing it.

Take full backup of your Exchange server
