Cant create an email / user in SBS2011 - Error Message - Screenshot included

Hey All,

Just trying to setup a user on an SBS 2011 Server and its giving me the error shown in the screenshot.

Now i remember having this in that past on SBS2008 when the user i was logged in as didnt have the rights to create a mailbox. However i am logged in with the main account which has admin rights to the server / domain. So i cant see it being that.

Any suggestions are welcome :)

Can you check your update logs and see if you installed KB2506143 (Power Shell 3.0) by any chance?  This is an old issue, but it does crop up from time to time still.  There is an incompatibility between PS3, Exchange 2010 and the SBS Console Wizards.  If that update is installed, you can uninstall it, reboot the server and you should be good to go :-)

Ahh it must be that, but i am a bit afraid to uninstall it... so a reboot does fix it for the time being anyway.
