Exchange 2010 allow specific users to create public folders

When users try to create Public Folders under All Public Folders in Outlook 2013 connected to Exchange 2010 they get the "Cannot create the folder.  You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object" error.  Exchange 2010 is on a 2011 Small Business Server.

If I create an Outlook account for the Server administrator on a workstation I can create Public Folder but going into the propertities of All Public Folders doesn't let me assign users who can create public folders.

If I add a user to the group "Public Folder Management" in Active Directory Users & Computer under My Business/Users\SBSUsers and log them in and out of Windows and fire up Outlook again that still doesn't work.

I have verified "AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1" exists in Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Scripts but when using the Exchange Management Shell or Windows PowerShell and try   AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 -toppublicfolder \ -User "FirstName LastName" -Permissions Owner  I get the error "AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet".

Any help would be appreciated.

Are they unable to create even if they have owner access to parent folder?
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
