I trying to run some scripts to do some mailbox management. One is particular to add some mailbox permissions. After typing the command and pressing Enter, nothing happens, I just end up with new line that only has >> at the beginning. What does that mean when the script does not do anything but give  anew line with >>?


[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Add-MailboxPermission -identity "heather" accessrights
fullaccess -user "zay
>> Add-MailboxPermission -identity heather accessrights fullaccess -user zay
>>

Missing a character in the command (a hyphen before accessrights parameter). It should be

Add-MailboxPermission -identity "heather" -accessrights fullaccess -user "zay

Thank you for the quick response, I added the hyphen, and got the same result, a new line with just >> and nothing else happening.

I thought it might be a permissions issue, but I am definitely in the right group.

Probably issue is, In above line you didn't close the  Inverted commas for zay

What if you try
Add-MailboxPermission -identity heather -accessrights fullaccess -user zay
