After Exchange 2007 database repair and mount, no mailboxes are shown

Hello everybody,

My exchange 2007 server just passed to a better life, and I need to recover the mailboxes.

I installed Exchange 2007 in a new server with the same name and the same configuration as the dead one. Then, I repaired the database using eseutil /p, then eseutil /d,  then isinteg -fix with the "Mailbox" and "AllFolderTests" tests, and then mounted it succesfully.

The thing is that there are no Mailboxes shown anywhere, neither on the Manager nor with the Get-Mailbox  cmdlet.

If I run some Cmdlets, a Get-MailboxStatistics, all mailboxes are shown with their number of elements and last login date. But, with Get-Mailbox, nothing is shown and I cannot export the mailboxes...

Is there a way to export / recover the mailboxes?   As you can imagine, this is very important for me and my company...

Thanks in advance!

did you  use the /recoverserver switch while re-installing exchange ?

Were you able to recover the edb and log files from the failing server?

did you check in the disconnected mailboxes ?

Hi Akhater,

Thanks for your ideas. I'm quite a newbie with Exchange Server, so I did not even know that there could be disconnected mailboxes. I checked and all the mailboxes were disconnected, as the original users they were assigned to were not created yet.

Thanks for your help!

I did not give him at that moment the complete information, that's why his response could not be more accurate, but gave me a bunch of reasons to go on on my search.
