Remote PowerShell Error: Value cannot be null

Not open for further replies.

Eric Thorsteinson

I am trying to run commands on our exchange server from another server, and I keep running into this problem regard less of the command I run. For example I am trying to run the New-MailboxExportRequest and I alway get the error " Value cannot be null." If I run the command from the exchange server console it works fine.

the client machine is Server 2008 (x86) and the server is Server 2008 R2 (x64).

Here is the exact log of what I am doing
Windows PowerShell Copyright (C) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. PS C:\Users\Administrator> Enter-PSSession -computerName SAM [sam]: PS C:\Users\Administrator\Documents> Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010 [sam]: PS C:\Users\Administrator\Documents> new-mailboxexportRequest cmdlet New-MailboxExportRequest at command pipeline position 1 Supply values for the following parameters: Mailbox: eric FilePath: C:\Test\eric.pst Value cannot be null. Parameter name: parameters + CategoryInfo : + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.ArgumentNullException,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMailboxExportRequest [sam]: PS C:\Users\Administrator\Documents>
It seems that almost all the exchange commands do not work using this connection method. Can any one tell me what I am missing?

Eric Thorsteinson

I have not. and can try it. Although I get the same error if I execute anything from the exchange tool set. For example if I do " Get-MailboxDatabase -Status" I get the same error.

I am running 2008 R2. But I still have not found a solution to the problem. :(
