Unable to create Exchange 2010 Recovery Database

  I'm needing to create an exchange 2010 recovery database to recover some files from our DPM backup.  I am unable to create a working database.  It creates it, but gives me an AD access denied error.  Any ideas??

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name Recovery1 -Server NCIVS0MAIL -EdbFilePath "C:\Recovery1
\Recovery1.edb" -LogFolderPath "C:\Recovery1\Logs"
Active Directory operation failed on NCIVS0DC1.xxxxx.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information
: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-031521D0, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MailboxDatabase], ADOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 6D8FD633,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.NewMailboxDatabase

I hope you are creating the new recovery database with administrator account and getting the error.. if so, check and set the permission


I have checked that blog and the permissions are there with full control all the way through.  Anything else to check?  I saw one place where somebody ran the setup /prepareAD again and that fixed it.  Is that off the Exchange 2010 dvd?
