Occasional Contributor

Following error appear when connecting Exchange powershell. Everything worked fine, but stopped to work.


I am able to login to GUI and all roles looks ok to me. I amGlobal Admin and Exchange Admin.


Getting following error: New-ExoPSSession : Processing data from remote server outlook.office365.com failed with the following error message: [AuthZRequestId=d4386dd7-a2d2-41cb-81ed-cbdcc5c6ab4d][FailureCategory=AuthZ-CmdletAccessDeniedException] The user "EURPR05A005.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM/Microso ft Exchange Hosted Organizations/postennorge.onmicrosoft.com/GAdmin-Gomsrud" isn't assigned to any management roles.

What version of EXO PS (V2?) are you using? How are you connecting?
• Please help me with the version of exchange Power Shell you are using?

version 5.1.19041.1151
o Import-Module ExchangeOnlineManagement
o Connect-ExchangeOnline
Well, actually was asking for the version of Exchange Management Shell, but I see on the information you share that is 2.0.3, I recommend updating to the latest (2.5.0) however I do not think that is the issue.

I read reports talking about the same issue lately for other users, I'll try to find out more
Some people told me this only happens when specifying the -UserPrincipalName parameter, can you try without it?


and let the login window pop up
