PowerShell - Message 'A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'server'.'

Problem:

You are attempting to use the Mailbox Storage Information report template or to import the size of mailboxes from your Exchange 2010/2013 servers and you systematically get the following error message:

System.Management.Automation.RemoteException: A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'server'.

Explanation:

Starting with Exchange 2010, it is no longer possible to import mailbox size using MAPI. PROMODAG Reports now runs PowerShell commands to get that information from Exchange. The account you are using needs specific permissions to perform this task.

Solution:
Make sure that the account defined in the Directory Connection tab of Tools > Options (up to PROMODAG Reports v. 8.7) or PowerShell Connection tab (from PROMODAG Reports v. 9.0 onwards) belongs to the Organization Management role group.
