Exchange Mailbox Export to NetApp SMB Share is Failing

My PowerShell-Fu is quite rusty, and I am looking for some help. I am assuming this is a permissions issue, but at any rate here is the deal. IHAC who is trying to export a mailbox from Exchange2010 to a CIFS share hosted on a NetApp FAS. The customer claims they can write files to the share, but when executing the following from PowerShell they are unable to write the file. Command and verbose output listed below.

Re: Exchange Mailbox Export to NetApp SMB Share is Failing

hi merick,

welcome to communities,

i would like you to check

a) Is this working manually first then check automation errors

b) googled around and found

Check the security on the location you are storing the PST's. You need to grant the Exchange Trusted Installer account at least Modify rights to the directory. We've seen that issue cause problems, and while it's actually talking about the source, it could be the destination also.

pls see someone also reported this http://www.powershellcommunity.org/Forums/tabid/54/aft/6744/Default.aspx

thanks

Re: Exchange Mailbox Export to NetApp SMB Share is Failing

choose another user that you haven't prepped for this merge operation and start the export  using the same .pst file location. Optionally refer this thread http://www.modernghana.com/blogs/458580/31/export-mailboxes-from-offline-edb-to-pst-or-live-e.html and check what you are missing.
