Exchange GUID's

Posted on 2011-10-17

I know that if I run get-maibox -identity XX | fl

One of the values I see is GUID.

Also, if I run get-mailboxstatistics -identity XX | fl

One of the values I see is the Mailbox GUID.

I know a GUID uniquely references a mailbox, but can anyone tell me how I can find the value described in here:

Which GUID (Exchange GUID, Mailbox GUID or GUID) am I looking for?

And how can I search for a mailbox when I only know it's GUID?

    Govvy is  correct.
    You can do
    get-mailbox GUID
    get-mailbox -identity:guid

    how to find GUID
    get-mailbox username | fl *guid*
    will give you the guid associated with the mailbox

    how can I search for a mailbox when I know the guid

    get-mailbox -identity:guid | fl
    will give you rest of the details.
