I have a Exchange 2007 environment running in a master domain with two child domains. I have an account in a child domain that for some reason is listed as a Shared mailbox and I need to change it to a Regular mailbox.  When running the Set-Mailbox -Type command I get an error 'Account cound not be found on Domain Controller'.  It's looking on the DC in the master domain. Must I add the -DomainController parameter for the child DC to the Set-mailbox command to get this to take?

Yes, specify the child domain controller and re-run the command:

set-mailbox [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [Identity] -Type Regular
