No mailboxes in Exchange 2010 recovery database
Posted on 2011-04-26
I'm trying to recover a couple of Exchange 2010 mailboxes from backup and I'm not having any luck. Prior to crashing hard, the server was backed up with WIndows Server Backup. I rebuilt the server with the same name, restored the database to a temp location, ran Eseutil to replay the logs and get it consistent, and mounted the database. However, when I run Get-MailboxStatistics -Database on the recovery database, it returns nothing--no mailboxes at all.
The DB is 3.5GB, so I know that SOMETHING is in there. I just can't get to it. Can anyone help? Did I miss some critical step in recovery?
