I'm trying to export a mailbox to PST, and I'm getting the following output:

Does anyone have any ideas what's going wrong here? I've installed Outlook 2010 x64 on a mailbox server, and I'm running this command from the exchange management console.

Can you look in your application logs and see if anything is showing up there? –  Jason Berg Aug 13 '10 at 17:44

Well, I found this. It may be an option. Try running the powershell as administrator then running the command. This is apparently a known issue
