Exchange 2010 Mailbox creation via Remote Powershell very slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • I create AD Users and Mailboxes from servers via PowerShell script from a remote machine.

    It worked fine and all of a sudden it takes anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes for the mailbox to create.

    I logged into the remote powershell script machine, opened PowerShell ISE and tested with the following scripts, with –Verbose, and this was the result:

    • Add-PSSnapin -Name Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
    • Enable-Mailbox -Identity 'DOMAIN/OU/OU/testcreateUser' -Alias 'testcreateUser' -Database 'Database1'-Verbose 

    Everything runs fine up to this point, and hangs for 10 minutes:

    VERBOSE: [09:07:34.120 GMT] Enable-Mailbox : [Microsoft Cmdlet Extension Agent] Read Email Address Policy for organization "" from domain controller xxx.

    VERBOSE: [09:07:34.151 GMT] Enable-Mailbox : [Microsoft Cmdlet Extension Agent] Found Email Address Policy "Default Policy".

    VERBOSE: [09:16:12.543 GMT] Enable-Mailbox : [Microsoft Cmdlet Extension Agent] Add Primary Email Address X400:C=xxxxx

    Any idea why it hangs at the Default Policy?
