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

Try this

Set-ADServerSettings –PreferredServer <DC FQDN>

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

 As you can see I am getting a different error. I have dismounted one of my mailboxes
I have 4 and I was able to mount this newly created mailbox.
Thanks for all the help
I would like to know what causes this limitation and how can I over come this limitation

thanks

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...
