Mailbox Recovery

Create recovery database using recovered database files:

New-MailboxDatabase -Recvoery -Name "database name" -Server "server name" -EdbFilePath "pathtodatabase" -LogFolderPath "pathtologfiles"


Check database status (using local PowerShell):

eseutil /mh 'pathtoEDBfile'


Check logs status:

eseutil /ml 'pathtologfolder'


Guide to recovery:


Once recovery database is mounted; recover mailbox to current user:

Restore-Mailbox -Identity "Administrator" -RecoveryDatabase "database name" -RecoveryMailbox "username" -TargetFolder "Recovery"


This command is better one to use as it recovers the dumpster also:

New-MailboxRestoreRequest -SourceDatabase "database name" -SourceStoreMailbox "username" -TargetMailbox "username" -TargetRootFolder "Recovery"


Can then use New-MailboxExportRequest to export to PST.
