    What is missing?

    My Code:

    public class ActiveDirectoryManager
    private const string CommonNameProperty = "CN";
    private const string ServiceProperty = "extensionAttribute11";
    private const string AccountNameProperty = "sAMAccountName";
    private const string DistinguishedNameProperty = "DistinguishedName";
    private const string DisplaynameProperty = "displayName";

    /// <summary>
    /// Gets the functional mailboxes.
    /// </summary>
    /// <returns></returns>
    public IList<FunctionalMailbox> GetFunctionalMailboxes()
    IList<FunctionalMailbox> functionalMailboxes = new List<FunctionalMailbox>();

    InitialSessionState iss = InitialSessionState.CreateDefault();
    iss.ImportPSModule(new[] { "activedirectory" });

    using (Runspace myRunSpace = RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace(iss))

    Pipeline pipeLine = myRunSpace.CreatePipeline();
    var getMailboxesCommand = new Command("Get-ADObject");
    getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add("SearchBase", "OU=resource mailboxes,OU=exchange,OU=allusers,OU=isis,DC=ces-cdr,DC=eu,DC=int");
    getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add("Filter", "objectclass -eq \"user\"");
    //getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add("MSExchHideFromAddressLists", "FALSE");
    getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add("Properties", new[] { AccountNameProperty, CommonNameProperty, DisplaynameProperty,
    "mail", "created", "description","protocolSettings", "publicDelegates","accountExpires", "msexchhidefromaddresslists" });

    Collection<PSObject> mailboxesTemp = pipeLine.Invoke();
    Collection<PSObject> mailboxes = new Collection<PSObject>();
    mailboxesTemp.ToList().ForEach(m =>
    if (m.Properties["msexchhidefromaddresslists"].Value != null && m.Properties["msexchhidefromaddresslists"].Value as bool? == true)

    HI CRogado,

    var getMailboxesCommand = new Command("Get-ADObject");

    The Get-ADObject cmdlet gets an Active Directory object or performs a search to get multiple objects.

    According to the error message, it seems that you don't use getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add() method properly, please check parameters in getMailboxesCommand.Parameters.Add(), and whether they are available.

    Have a good day.
