Hey

When connecting remote to our Exchange server using Powershell - I get the following error: (New-Mailbox)


New-PSSession myex01

 Id Name            ComputerName    State    ConfigurationName     Availability
 -- ----            ------------    -----    -----------------     ------------

Enter-PSSession 1
[myex01]: PS C:\> Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010

[myex01]: PS C:\> New-Mailbox xxx4 -shared -UserPrincipalName xxx4@mydomain.local

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: parameters
    + CategoryInfo          :
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.ArgumentNullException,Microsoft.Exchange.
   Management.RecipientTasks.NewMailbox

Why?

Hmm, not sure why you are creating a remote powershell session and then importing the exchange 2010 snapin as well?

If I want to get around the stupid concurrent pipeline error I sometimes get with remote powershell I then import the snapin to windows powershell and that then works for me.

I assume you've checked the values tab in OK? If you run just New-Mailbox and don't enter anything else does it ask you for the values to be entered?

PowerShell with Exchange 2010 supports remote commands anyway, this is a fairly typical remote exchange powershell setup I use:

#Function to dynamically open sessions to E14 Servers
Function Open-Session
{
	$ServerList = "Server1.FQDN", "Server2.FQDN", "Server3.FQDN"
	
	for ($i = 0 ; $i -lt $ServerList.Count ; $i++)
	{
		$ConnectionURI = "http://" + $ServerList[$i] + "/powershell/?SerializationLevel=Full"
		
		write-host $ConnectionURI
		
		$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange –ConnectionUri $ConnectionURI –Authentication Kerberos
		Import-PSSession $Session
		
		if ($Session)
		{
			write-host "Session Established"
			return $Session
		}
	}

}

#Connect to Exchange 2010 with Remote Powershell
$Session = Open-Session

##### Run Commands Here #####

#Cleanup Session
[string]$SessionID = $Session | % {$_.InstanceId.guid}
$SessionID = $SessionID.Trim()

Remove-PSSession -InstanceID $SessionID

Remove-Variable -Name "SessionID"
