I need to locate and import an exchange applet

I recently, a couple days ago, installed the remote exchange server tools for exchange 2010, on a windows 7 machine. When I open the exchange console it defaults to the wrong exchange server, we have a farm. WHen I click on the properties and try to connect to another server I get and error:

The term 'Get-ExchangeServer' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

I am new to the powershell, well not exactly new as I have shunned it since its conception, and I am now studying the powershell for the first time.

I tried running the get-exchangeserver command from my regular powershell and the exchange enhanced powershell and it failes on both. When I run the script from the exchange server's regular power shell it fails, but when run under the excahnge modified shell it works perfectly.

I though I would just copy the script to my local win 7 PC, but I can not find this command/script.

Can anyone help me out here :)

Did you make sure that all of the services are running on your windows machine? Have you tried to re-install the Management Tools? Are you using the Exchange Management Shell rather than the standard Powershell interface?

Do the above first.

when you open the exchange console, before you try change servers, does the console appear to work properly?

Good morning and thank you for the comments.

The command does not run from the exchange enhanced powershell either. I figure that a module is not loaded or something to that extent.

I did figure out how to make a remote connection to a different server via powershell, but it would be nice to be able to switch to the other exchange servers (they have different roles) using the console.

In order to load the module in a normal Powershell session, run this:

Add-PSSnapin *Exchange*

Open in new window

This is assuming the management tools have been successfully installed.
