This was a frustrating error that, if I had slowed down for 2 minutes, would have been easy for me to figure out what was wrong.
The issue was that the Exchange Power Shell – Management Shell cmdlets was not in the location Exchange expected sooooo, I had to run the standard Windows Server Power Shell and load the commands manually:
- Right click on the standard Windows Power Shell and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
- paste in the following code:
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -PSConsoleFile “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\bin\exshell.psc1″ -noexit -command “. ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\bin\Exchange.ps1’”
Note that when you paste you WILL have to fix the single quote ‘ as my text editor appears to change them some gibberish.In my case an addition problem was that the blogs I was looking at to figure out my problem did not have the \V14\ folder in their path… this is bad.
- type your Exchange command and watch it work 🙂
