Exchange 2010 power shell command wants "identy"

I am trying to get all the mailbox sizes in an Exchange 2010 database. When I run commands I have used before, it asks for the "identity"
When I run
Get-MailboxStatistics | fl Displayname,{$_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToMB()}

It comes back with:

cmdlet Get-MailboxStatistics at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:

This happens for other commands also. What is it looking for?
1 Solution
add the switch  -server YOURSERVERNAME
chakko's solution would work if you have only one server, if you have more than one server you can use the below

I also added an export to csv option if you need it

$mbxs = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited
$mbxs | %{ Get-MailboxStatistics $_ } | select-object Displayname,{$_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToMB()} | export-csv c:\stats.csv

Open in new window
