I have access to an Exchange 2010 setup. The Exchange 2010 console works fine.

However, commands run in exchange shell do not work:

[PS] C:\ps>get-mailbox *tony*
The operation couldn't be performed because object '*tony*' couldn't be found on 'exdcm10.uk.is.adr'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-Mailbox], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 6B0F798D,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.GetMailbox

[PS] C:\ps>



Does anyone know how to fix?

Thanks.

Hello,

You have error, because you haven't mailbox with alias&name "*tony*".

Try "Get-Mailbox *" and look into alias & name columns.

Syntacsys of get-mailbox cmdlt: http://technet.microsoft.com/ru-ru/library/bb123685%28v=exchg.141%29.aspx

Ok, we have 15,000 users so there is definitely someone with *tony*.

Now when I run get-mailbox * -resultsize 10000

It only returns a small subset of users, about 200, not everyone in the enterprise - any idea why?

Take anyone user from previuos result and try get-mailbox *AnyoneUserName*

For example:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-Mailbox *
Name                      Alias                ServerName       ProhibitSendQuota
----                      -----                ----------       -----------------
root                      root                 hrs-msd     unlimited
test11 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test11               hrs-msd     unlimited
test12 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test12               hrs-msd     unlimited
test13 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test13               hrs-msd     unlimited
test14 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test14               hrs-msd     unlimited

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-Mailbox *test*
Name                      Alias                ServerName       ProhibitSendQuota
----                      -----                ----------       -----------------
test11 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test11               hrs-msd    unlimited
test12 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test12               hrs-msd     unlimited
test13 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test13               hrs-msd     unlimited
test14 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test14               hrs-msd     unlimited
test15 ¿¿¿¿¿¿             test15               hrs-msd     unlimited

Ah it's ok thanks for your help but I figured it out. I just had to set it to the entire forest rather than the server I was running the command from:

Set-AdServerSettings -ViewEntireForest $True
