In the Exchange 2010 (SP3)  management shell, can anyone tell me what would be the correct command and syntax to export all archive mailboxes from an archive database as individual PST files?  I am really hoping I don't have to export them one by one.

You should just be able to run a query against Exchange to find all mailboxes with the personal archive enabled - $archives = Get-Mailbox | ?{$_.ArchiveDatabase -ne $null}

Then you can run the new mailbox export request in a loop against all the collected mailboxes -
foreach($archive in $archives)
{
New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $($archive.alias) -IsArchive -FilePath "\\SERVER01\PSTFileShare\$($archive.alias).pst"
}

Nothing seems to happen with those commands.

Get-Mailbox | ?{$_.ArchiveDatabase -ne $null}

Does just running this produce any output?

Yes, We get the list.  But nothing seems to happen with the second command.
