Connect-Service for Exchange cmdlets?

Is it just me or is there no cmdlet similar to Connect-QADService for Exchange 2007?

My workstation is not in the forest which has the Exchange organization which I need to manage. Does that mean I now need to add the -Credential $mycreds -DomainController my.domain.local for each and every Exchange cmdlet instead of just connecting once and then working against a specific DC under certian credentials?..

    I had to give up on remote Exchange administration too, for similar reasons 😦 I hope the Exchange team is taking notes.

    No, it’s not just you. In point of fact, I am surprised you were even able to install the cmdlets without being a member of the domain. I had a bit of a hard time with this.

    I guess I could install them fine because my workstation is indeed a part of a domain. Just not the domain I wanted to target. 😦

    We need to get someone from the Exchange product group on the podcast to answer to this one. 🙂

    Do you know Evan? Shoot me an email if you need an introduction. Getting Evan on the podcast sounds like a great idea!
