I am running Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 and would like help with archiving both types of mailbox to pst files. I have installed the exchange management powershell on my XP Pro 32Bit O/S. and attempted to run the Export-Mailbox cmdlet to achieve this migration but instead received the following errors; "ServerStorage groupMailboxes" does not exist. What could I be doing wrong? Could it be I have insufficient access rights and privileges to perform this action or is there something I'm not doing?

An update to my question is that I believe I have sufficent permissions I can run the cmdlet confirm my actions by typing Y. Once confirmed a Microsoft error message appears saying:

Windows Powershell has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please tell Microsoft about this problem.

Thank you for viewing my question.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need to do this from the server on which the storage group resides. The command is looking for the mail store locally and cannot find it.

    Thanks for your response. I have attempted this process from my Exchange 2007 server but an error came back saying the operation can only take place from a 32bit o/s with Outlook installed. Just to confirm, in order to perform this task I am running the commands from Exchange Powershell and not Windows Powershell. I assume this is correct.
