Hi
I created recovery storage group and restore of a database into the RSG.
After that I what to export a single mail box from that RSG database to a PST file.
Therefore I add permission to the recovery database with AdPermission. This completed successfully.
Then I used the Export Mailbox and I receive this error:

Export-Mailbox : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the com
mand either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and i
ts properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.
At line:1 char:102
+ get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Da
tabase" | Export-Mailbox  <<<< -Identity "fvaltulini" -PSTFolderPath "D:\fvaltu
lini.pst"

What is the problem. I can export single files from the First Storage Group.

get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database"  | Add-ADPermission -user "domain\ExchangeAdmin" -ExtendedRights Receive-As

 

 

get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database" | Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst

you cannot extract directly from RSG Database.
Create a new Mailbox and restore content to it and export it then to PST:

Restore-Mailbox -Identity newMailbox -RSGDatabase "Recovery Storage Group\My Database" -RSGMailbox mailboxToRecover -TargetFolder "something"

From Technet:
The TargetFolder parameter specifies the mailbox folder that will be created on the mailbox specified. This parameter is required if the mailbox being restored is different from the mailbox in the recovery storage group. (For example, the value specified with the Identity parameter is not the same as the value specified with the RSGMailbox parameter.) In this case, the Restore-Mailbox cmdlet will perform a merge. If the values are the same, the TargetFolder parameter is not required.

Hi Trinity99

I tested the Restore-Mailbox command and it worked ok. But I still do have some issues with those commands.

When I use the command for the First Storage Group "Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst" with the "Get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" then I get the same error.
Is this command (Export Mailbox") not compatible with Get-mailboxdatabase command?

In Mailbox Role I can have several Storage Groups and Mail Databases. How can I export from a specific Mail Database/Storage Group. I understood that I cannot export from RSG.

Hope I explained understandable

regards
