Exchange 2010 Mailbox Export failing

Hi All,

I am trying to do a mass export on all mailboxes but im getting an error and i cant see where it's going wrong. It's a Exch 2010 SP1 on a 2008 R2 box. I have already assigned role permissions and added the Exch Trust group on the designated folder location security permissions. My command as below:

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=Active,OU=Users,OU=London,DC=domain,DC=local" | New-MailboxExportRequest -FolderPath \\server\folder\$($i.Alias).pst

And the output i get as below:

A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '\\server\folder\.pst'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [New-MailboxExportRequest], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,New-MailboxExportRequest

Invoke-Command : Cannot write input as there are no more running pipelines
At C:\Users\master\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Exchange\RemotePowerShell\server.domain.local\server.domain.lo
cal.psm1:28430 char:29
+             $scriptCmd = { & <<<<  $script:InvokeCommand `
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [Invoke-Command], PSInvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NoMoreInputWrite,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeCommandCommand

Obviously this is something to do with the location im trying to move the export to but im unsure why.

The below command for a single mailbox export works without issue:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Identity user -PSTFolderPath \\server\folder\user.pst

Any help is appreciated.

If you do a single mailbox export, does that work?
Are you sure on the version as well - I am sure new-mailboxexportrequest was new to SP2, so wouldn't exist in SP1.

Single mailbox works but i have specified the exact location and name of the .pst as below:

New-MailboxExportRequest -Identity user -PSTFolderPath \\server\folder\user.pst


Exchange 2010 Version: 14.02.0342.003

I may be wrong on the service pack apologies.

14.02 is SP2.

The problem is this bit: $($i.Alias) - it doesn't recognise the command and therefore you get the error you are seeing.

Try this script instead:
