Dear experts,

I am trying to export a mailbox to a pst file using Exchange 2010. I have tried the command line:

New-MailboxExportRequest –mailbox joeuser –filepath \\server\share\exported\joe.pst [enter]

however, it give me the error message below:

Couldn't find the Enterprise Organization container.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MailboxExportRequest], OrgContainerNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AB0577B9,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMailboxExportRequest
    + PSComputerName        : lcdsrv02.lacantinadoors.local

Is there another command line that I can use?

Thanks

this article specifically addresses that error, confirming the missing RBAC permissions as mentioned above

Error message when you run the New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet in Exchange Server 2010 SP1 or Exchange Server 2010 SP2: "Couldn't find the Enterprise Organization container"

Thank you all, the webpage helped a lot. I gave permission to the folder, then reopen the EMS. That did the trick, the command line worked afterwards.
