  • Hi

    You cannot use AD Users & Computers to manage Exchange 2010 mailboxes so you will have to install the console on your PC.  Exchange 2010 uses built-in powershell scripts to perform tasks which is not possible in ADUC.

    Cheers, Steve

  • Then you have to use one of these x64 operating systems (XP is not supported):

    * Windows 7
    * Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    * Windows Server 2008 SP2
    * Windows Server 2008 R2

    Install the Exchange 2010 Management Tools
