Poweshell Command for Get-Mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to get the mailbox using powershell cmdlet in c# program. I can see connection is being initialized successfully but when try to execute the get-mailbox cmdlet, i see the following error.

    The term 'Get-Mailbox' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
       at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.PipelineBase.Invoke(IEnumerable input)
       at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.Pipeline.Invoke()

    below is my c# code

    Command cmd= new Command("Get-Mailbox");

                        cmd.Parameters.Add("Identity", "xxxxxx");


                        Collection<PSObject> results = new Collection<PSObject>();

                runspace = RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace();

                        Pipeline pipe = runspace.CreatePipeline();




                        results = pipe.Invoke();

  • Hi

    The account you executing this with, does it have the correct permissions in Exchange to be able to run it?

    You would need to load the poweshell exchange module before the 'get-mailbox' will work
