Mail Storage Groups can contain several Mail Databases or I can have on Mail Role several Storage Groups. How then can I export from a specific Mail Database/Storage Group.
When I use the command for the First Storage Group "Get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst"

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

Is this command (Export Mailbox") not compatible with Get-mailboxdatabase command?

"Get-mailboxdatabase -identity "SRV-Exchange\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst"

The problem with your command is you're missing the pipe |

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

Sorry, in Shell I use it with this pipe line.

Error
Export-Mailbox : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the com

Why can't you just use this?

Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini@yourdomain.com -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst

that will export the individual user

If you want to export everyone in a Database, you could use something like (I think this will work)

Exchange 2007 doesn't really reference "first storage group"

You could try
Get-mailboxdatabase -identity Mailbox Database | Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst

or

Get-Mailbox -Database DatabaseName | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath C:\PSTFiles

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit OU-NAME | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath C:\PSTFiles

This example exports the data from each mailbox to a separate .pst file located at C:\PSTFiles. The name of each .pst file will be <alias>.pst.

You export it by Database name, you don't need to reference the storage group, but if you want you can use this.

-database with these values
  Database name
 Server name\database name
 Server name\storage group\database name

You would use -database, not -identity.

Get-mailboxdatabase -database "SRV-Exchange\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" | Export-Mailbox -Identity fvaltulini -PSTFolderPath D:\fvaltulini.pst"


You can reference this page for syntax:

The get-mailbox -database command with export-mailbox -identity switch is not working either.

best regards
