  1. Fantastic,

    for anyone else who need this:

    I also had to do the following to get the exchange management shell open from the Security (edge) server.

    open an elevated command prompt

    wershell.exe -PSConsoleFile “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin\Exsh

    Windows PowerShell then starts and then follow through from point 1.a above.
