Exchange 2010: Unable to Export mailbox using New-MailboxExportRequest

Good Morning, Experts!

So, I am attempting to export some Mailboxes using Exchange Powershell and the New-MailboxExportRequest process. However, whenever I attempt to export the mailbox, I get the following error:

"There aren't any available servers running the Mailbox Replication Service"

I have verified the following:

- The Exchange 2010 Server Microsoft Exchange Replication service is running. The server has been rebooted a couple of times since first encountering this error, so the Service has been restarted numerous times.

- The Target server (where the .PST files are being exported to) has the Net. Tcp Port Sharing Service, and that service is Started. Restarting the service does not help.

- Running Test-MRSHealth results in the following output:

Check: Service Check
Passed: True
Message: The Mailbox Replication Service is running.
IsValid: <Exchange Server>
ObjectState: New

Check: RPCPingCheck
Passed: False
Message: The RPC endpoint for the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service
couldn's respond: The call to 'net.tcp://<Exchange Server>/Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService' failed.
Error details: Access is denied..  --> Access is denied..
Identity: <Exchange Server>
IsValid: True
ObjectState: New

Check: QueueScanCheck
Passed: True
Message: The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service is scanning mailbox database queues for jobs.
Lase scan age: 00:06:47.2226905.
Identity: <Exchange Server>
IsValid: True
ObjectState: New

I am part of the Domain Admins and Enterprise Admins groups, and the target file share has Full Control access for the Exchange Servers and Exchange Trusted Subsystem groups, as well as the Administrators group.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Did you also assign yourself or a group that you are part of to the "Import Export Role"? This is also required to run the command New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet.

Yes, the following command has already been run on my account:

New-ManagementRoleAssignment –Role “Mailbox Import Export” –User “username”

I have run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Mailbox Import Export" -GetEffectiveUsers command, and can see my name listed.
Can you confirm what Service Pack versions all of your Exchange servers are running? Also what RU are they running as well?

Bingo! Looks like running the command directly from the server resolved the issue. Will have to dig deeper, and see why this is the case.

You are an Exchange Ninja, Will. Thank you very much for your assistance.
