Export-mailbox command

How come when I used the 'export-mailbox' command in powershell it has to be done a machine that is 32bit.

I want to export to a .pst

I am using 32 XP pro, and I download Exchange SP2 management tools.

Just wondering why MS won't let you know from the exchange server.
I have Exchange 2007 - 64bit

    Hi wynnie2

    Just had this exact same issue with one of my customers, basically it all boils down to requiring Outlook to be installed on the Server. Of course I thought I would be smart and install the new Outlook 2010 64Bit on the Server and then run the command but that was just a waste of time still gave the same error.

    Essentially you need the 32Bit Exchange tools to talk to the 32Bit Outlook and you can't install these on a 64Bit Server.

    This of course is all resolved in Exchange 2010 SP1 because it comes with a new Export Mailbox Command - New-MailboxExportRequest.
