add AD Powershell Tools to Exchange Management Shell

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I am using Exchange Mangement Shell using a script to import users from a CSV...

and Get-ADUser is not supported in Exchange Management Shell.. is there a way to add the cmdlet?

The opposite is true if I try to run New-Mailbox in Powershell...

This is taking place on an Exchange 2010 server with HUB services installed.. it was this way before I got here a month ago. The Script had been manually ran at 0900 ant 1300 to import users (students) from a csv provided by the registrar's office. I am trying to automate the task to run in task scheduler.. when I come in at 0900, the task shows as still running.
