Exchange 2010 EMC connection issue

Last Modified: 2015-08-29
I have introduced a new Server 2012 into an existing domain.
Primary DC SBS2008 with Exchange 2007.
Update Rollup 8-v2 and 10 to 15 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3.

Server1 (new) Server 2012 R2 Standard installed and joined the server to the existing domain.
Web Server IIS
.NET Framework 3.5 & 4.5 Features
WinRM IIS Extension
Media Features
Exchange 2010.

The existing Backup server runs Server 2008 R2 SP1
Update Rollup 7-v2 Exchange Server 2010 SP1
Update Rollup 8 Exchange Server 2010 SP1
Update Rollup Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Unified Communications Manager API 2.0

No antivirus yet
The backup server can see Server1 in the EMC all seems works ok there.
On Server 2012 (Server1) when I open EMC and try to connect to BackupServer I see the following.

Initialization failed
The following error occurred when retrieving user information for domainname\admin
The term "Get-LinkedRoleGroupForLogonUser" is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.
Check spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

Maybe admin is not recognized as an account on Server2012?
I was reading a post where I guy had the same error and he said both Exchange 2010 versions need to be the same.
Backupserver Version 14.1 (Build 218.15)
Server1 Version 14.2 (Build 247.5)
If so how do I bring BackupServer up to same as Server1 version and build?
