I am working on a script that will write to the event log a error when my exchange 2010 database is not mounted on the prefered server. Here is the function I have written to check if the databvase is "Mounted" on the prefered server.

I added a write-output to check that my $Mounted is getting the proper result and it is but the function is always returning false.

function IsDatabaseMounted
{
      $Mounted = Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus "MBX01\sever1" | fl status
      write-output $Mounted
      if ($Mounted  -eq "Status : Mounted"){
      
            return $true;
            
      }else{
            return $false
      }      
}

If your saying replace

 if ($Mounted  -eq "Status : Mounted"){

with

if ($Mounted.Status -eq  "Status : Mounted"){

That did not work.

Ah but you did point me in the correct direction.
The below worked.


function IsDatabaseMounted
{
      $Mounted = Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus "PDI-Temple-MBX01\server1"
      write-output $Mounted.status
      if ($Mounted.status -eq "Mounted"){
      
            return $true;
            write-output "TRUE!!!!!"

      }else{
            return $false
      }      
}

Command Line Tips and Tricks

The command line is a powerful tool at the disposal of every Linux user. Although Linux distros come with beautiful user interfaces, it's worthwhile to learn the command line because it allows you to do a number of things that you otherwise cannot do from the GUI.

remove the fl status:


function IsDatabaseMounted
{
      $Mounted = Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus "MBX01\sever1" 
      
      if ($Mounted.Status  -eq "Mounted"){
      
            return $true;
            
      }else{
            return $false
      }      
}
