Struggling to make a linked email account through Shell

After creating a new user in AD, I would like to pass a command to Exchange Shell to create the new linked mailbox, I'd like exchange to use it's default naming rules to create the email address.

I'm using this command as Domain Admin but receiving errors...

New-Mailbox -Database "My Mailbox Database" -Name "Johnny Bravo" -LinkedDomainController "MYDC" -LinkedMasterAccount "Johnny Bravo@contoso.local" -OrganizationalUnit Users

Open in new window


here is my error


The resource user can't be linked to a user account from the local forest "mydc.local".
