One of our exchange servers crashed, and I am trying to recover the mailboxes.
We had 1 exchange 2003 server named "apex" and 1 exchange 2010 server named "2008Enterprise.
the exchange 2010 server named "2008Enterprise" crashed.
I created a new exchange 2010 server named "Providence".
I ran the command on Providence:
New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name JBCMail -Server Providence -EdbFilePath "c:\data\Exchange\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0579285147\Mailbox Database 0579285147.edb" -LogFolderPath "c:\data\Exchange\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0579285147"
this command executed and finished without error
I then ran the command:
eseutil /p E00
this command was executed from the below directory: c:\data\Exchange\Mailbox\Mailbox Database 0579285147
I then mounted the JBCMail with the mount command note: I do not have my full typed command.
Inside my Exchange Management Console (EMC) I can view the new mailbox database named JBCMail. The JBCMail database is show as mounted on the exchange server named Providence.
I can see the crashed Exchange server named 2008Exchange. In the EMC the crashed exchange server states the Copy Status under ServerConfiguration->Mailbox is ServiceDown.
From here I need to recover three mailboxes
The mail boxes are on the apex server.
How do I move the mailboxs from apex to Providence? How do I restore the mailboxes from JBCmail mounted database to the user's mailbox?
I do not fully understand how to use the Restore-Mailbox command because when I use this command it tries to restore the mailbox to the dead apex server.
