I have already discovered that I cannot use the Exchange Management Console and believe I need to go through the PowerShell. I tried the command below but got the following error.

Just made a typo? All advice welcome



PS C:\> New-Mailbox -Name:'Budget' -OrganizationalUnit:'Domain.com/Exchange Res
ources' -Database:'Mailbox Database' -UserPrincipalName:'budget@domain.com' -Sh
ared
