Did you run this from a PowerShell prompt?

Did you run it from an Exchange server?

open exchange powershell from an exchange server. then .\SetEVThrottlingPolicy.ps1 -user domain\evserviceaccount

notice the exchange powershell, exchange server, and the .\ before the script name.

Thank you for your replys,

Did you copy the SetEVThrottlingPolicy.ps1 to the Exchange server and is it in that directory?

Thank you all for your replys, 

Now it works fine,

but in a DAG environnement do we need to run the .\SetEVTrottlingPolicy.ps1 -user domain\evserviceaccount for each server member of the DAG ? if yes do we have to change the evserviceaccount or we use the same ?

it's just run once per service account so only one time :-)
