AppInsight for Exchange: PowerShell Script Error. A management role assignment policy, user, or security group couldn't be found with the identity

Overview

You receive the following error: PowerShell Script Error. A management role assignment policy, user, or security group couldn't be found with the identity...

Environment

 

All SAM versions

Cause

This is most likely caused by having a login name with illegal characters.

For more information, see TechNet: Creating User and Group Accounts (© 2016 , Microsoft available at https://technet.microsoft.com, obtained on December 1, 2016.) 

  • Logon names can't contain certain characters. Invalid characters are " / \ [ ] : ; | = , + * ? < >

  • Logon names can contain all other special characters, including spaces, periods, dashes, and underscores. But it's generally not a good idea to use spaces in account names.

​Resolution

Remove the offending characters.
