OIM910 - Exchange 2007 Connector Create Mailbox Fail

OIM910 - Exchange 2007 Connector Create Mailbox Fail

I have OIM 9.1.0 installed, and I am using Exchange Connector 9.1.0, and I configured my exchange IT Resource to use Remote Manager, and I did the following steps to create mailbox.

1. Provision AD User account to OIM User.
2. Once I created the AD account, then I provision exchange 2007 account with the remote manager up, but I failed to create mailbox.
Here is the procedure how exchange connector create mailbox.
1. first it check if the mailbox is already present in the Exchange.
2. If it is not present then it execute the scripts createmailboxexchange2007.vbs script using the remote manager.
3. It then again checks if the mailbox is created.

The error log as shown below:
"DEBUG,19 Nov 2009 14:01:19,977,http://OIMCP.MEXC,com.thortech.xl.integration.Exchange.tcExchangeTasks : checkMailboxCreation : No value for homeMDB fetched
INFO,19 Nov 2009 14:01:19,978,http://OIMCP.MEXC,com.thortech.xl.integration.Exchange.tcExchangeTasks : checkMailboxCreation : Unable to execute the Power Shell command"

So basically step2 was failed, so in step 3, can not get attribute homeMDB, if step 2 succeed, in step3 , OIM should be able to get attribute value for homeMDB, as for now, I believe something wrong with the script "CreateMailboxExchange2007" .

Here is what I did on the remote manager host machine.
I manually execute the script "CreateMailboxExchange2007", and It worked!
so there is nothing wrong with the script, so I begun to believe there was something wrong with the Java and powershell, below are my spec for java and powershell.

Java: jdk-6u17-windows-i586 ---- 32bit
Powershell: WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB926139-v2-x64-ENU ---- 64bit
OS: Window Server 2003 x64 Enterprise Edition

So I think the problem might be 32bit and 64bit powershell can not work together,
So I installed 64bit java (jdk-6u17-windows-x64) instead, and It turned out to be working an fix the problem.

Just for your information, below are a java program which can create mailbox with the help of "CreateMailboxExchange2007.vbs"

public class RunScript {
public static void main(String [] args){
try {
//String cmd ="cmd /c C:\\oracle\\xlremote\\scripts\\CreateMailboxExchange2007.vbs";
//String cmd ="C:/oracle/xlremote/scripts/CreateMailboxExchange2007.vbs";
String cmd ="C:\\oracle\\xlremote\\scripts\\CreateMailboxExchange2007.vbs \"Mailbox Database\" \"C:\\oracle\\xlremote\\log\\Report.log\"";
//String cmd="PowerShell.exe -PSConsoleFile C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin\exshell.psc1 -noexit ""&{""Enable-Mailbox -Database \'Mailbox Database\'\;\exit 0\} >> \'C:\oracle\xlremote\log\Report.log\'";
//String cmd = "C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\PowerShell.exe -PSConsoleFile \"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\exshell.psc1\" -noexit & {\"Enable-Mailbox -Database \'Mailbox Database\'\";\"exit 0\"} >> \'C:\\oracle\\xlremote\\log\\Report.log\'";
//String cmd = "cmd /c powershell C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\exshell.psc1 & {\"Enable-Mailbox -Database \'Mailbox Database\'\"}";
//String cmd = "PowerShell.exe -PSConsoleFile \'C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\exshell.psc1\' -noexit -command \". \'C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\Exchange.ps1\'; Enable-Mailbox test4 -Database \'Mailbox Database\'";
//String cmd = "PowerShell.exe -PSConsoleFile \"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\exshell.psc1\" -noexit -command \". \'C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\Exchange.ps1\'; Enable-Mailbox test4 -Database \'Mailbox Database\'";
//String cmd = "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft\\Exchange Server\\bin\\Exchange.ps1 Enable-Mailbox -Identity test4 -Database \'Mailbox Database\'";
//String cmd = "cmd /c mkdir test2";

File file = new File("C:\\oracle\\xlremote\\scripts\\CreateMailboxExchange2007.vbs");
System.out.println("File not existed.");
Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process process = runtime.exec("cscript.exe " + cmd);
//Process process = runtime.exec("cmd /c " + cmd);
//Process process = runtime.exec( cmd );
int i = process.waitFor();
InputStream inputstream = process.getInputStream();
InputStreamReader inputstreamreader = new InputStreamReader(inputstream);
BufferedReader bufferedreader = new BufferedReader(inputstreamreader);
String line;
PrintWriter printwrite = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter("test.txt", true));
while ((line = bufferedreader.readLine()) != null) {
} catch(Exception ex) {
