          $vdirName = "PowerShell";
          $InternalPowerShellUrl="http://" + $RoleFqdnOrName + "/powershell";

Well ended up having to go with MS Tech support.  They uninstalled exchange and every windows feature then did the install from the command line and 6 hours later all is well.
Well commands looks OK and it should work. Did you checked the event logs to see any hints there ?
