It's not able to get the information it needs from Active Directory.

Try this

Set-ADServerSettings –PreferredServer <DC FQDN>

Ex 2010 Standard is limited to 5 databases mounted at once.  Also if you haven't entered the product code the trial installation will act as the "Standard" edition.  Use Set-ExchangeServer <ServerName> -ProductCode <EnterpriseProductCode>

If the database still doesn't mount it may have something to do with having created it before you were licensed to use that many DB's.  I've found that entering the previously mentioned command Set-ADServerSettings –PreferredServer <FQD of DC> seems to fix it.

In my own case this procedure resolved it and it continued to work across dismounts and re-mounts and across ESM sessions etc...
