Are you getting any errors?

Does it work like this:

NEW-VHD -Path C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB6\Exch-DB6.vhdx -Fixed -SizeBytes 495GB

Remember, you can use -Whatif to see what the line does...

hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB1\Exch-DB1.vhdx -Size 4GB
hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB2\Exch-DB2.vhdx -Size 4GB
hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB3\Exch-DB3.vhdx -Size 4GB
hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB4\Exch-DB4.vhdx -Size 4GB
hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB5\Exch-DB5.vhdx -Size 4GB
hyper-v\NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB6\Exch-DB6.vhdx -Size 4GB

Open in new window

I have 2 hyper-v  modules so I had to select the right one.  Note the Size vs SizeBytes

What Kash wanted to suggest (next time please do so, Kash!), is
foreach ($loc in 'Exch-DB1', 'Exch-DB2', 'Exch-DB3', 'Exch-DB4', 'Exch-DB5', 'Exch-DB6') {
  new-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\$loc\$loc.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
}

Open in new window

But that does not change the issue at hand, probably. There has to be an error message stopping the script.
