We run Exchange 2010 SP1 on Windows 2008 R2 servers. Total of 3 hub/cas + 3 db servers.
We have a department that are moving out, and all their mailboxes are now linked to another account in another tree and domain. There are trust between these domains.

But when I run the export command I get a problem with AD:


[PS] C:\Windows\system32>New-MailboxExportRequest -mailbox "user" -filepath "\\mailserver\pstfiles\user.pst"

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'user' couldn't be found on 'dc01.domain.local'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MailboxExportRequest], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 4809FA2D,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMailboxExportRequest

The "dc01.domain.local" is the same domain where the mailservers are located.

Im also trying to get the command "Export-Mailbox" to work, but after giving all the necessary rights, installing Outlook, and restarting the servers, and waiting for 2,5 hours, it still wont show up. So Im kind of stuck here. I have tried everything that is described here: http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/exporting-importing-mailboxes-exchange-server-2010.html and other articles..


So, any tip about how to get the mailboxes exported to PST?

You might be using the wrong value for the User's name in the mailbox switch. The cmdlet only accepts the value of their Alias, Email Address, or Display name.

Also, the export-mailbox cmdlet was removed in SP1, so it doesn't exist anymore.

I have tried with both alias and primary SMTP address and no luck, I still get the message saying it cant find the account on the domain controller.

I think the problem is related to the fact that the account is on another domain. So how can I make it work?

Add the -DomainController switch to the command and specify a domain controller where the user object resides

there is no export-mailbox cmdlet in Exchange 2010 so you will never get that to work

The -Domaincotroller swith was the missing part.
