SBS 2010 Importing bulk pst files

Hello all,

I am fairly new to Exchange 2010 and I am trying to import .pst files I created from Exmerge.  I need to know if I can import the files directly from the server after installing Outlook 2010 64-bit on the server and if so what are the steps.  I have created a group, ran the command

New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Name "MailboxImportExport" -SecurityGroup "PSTImport" -Role "Mailbox Import Export"

Ran fine no errors.  When I try to impor the mailboxes it states that the import-mailbox command is not recognized as part of teh cmdlet.  I am sure I need to install something additional, such as Exchange support tools just not sure where to find them and if I can install them on the server.

Please advise.

Keith

So i have to logon as that user or logoff/logon as admin?  I am downloading SP1 now so I don't need the Exchange support tools or Outlook on the server?

Well after a lot of frustration, I had to get get Microsoft involved, It is pretty bad when their techs struggle with the commands but I will go ahead and give the points to Akhater because the commands he was using was correct but there were some things missing, we did have to install Outlook 2010 64 bit on the server to get it to work.  SBS 2011 does come with SP 1 installed just fyi........

Hmm thats odd since SP1 removed the need for Outlook needing to be installed

totally agree with lucid8 no idea what MS support told you but you do NOT need outlook to be installed for it to work

anyway what counts is that it is working for you
