Finding users on Exchange 2010 server


We have a bunch of Exchange 2010 servers in a DAG for testing. Some servers don't hold active copies of databases.

We have 10 servers altogether in the DAG, and I need to bring one down on Sat morning to replace some hardware. The server that needs the maintenance is Exch2010_1

On Saturday morning, what command can I run to ensure that no active copies of the DB are currently running on Exchange2010_1? I just want to ensure that no users are affected.

Also, apart from checking that no active db's are on that server, is there anything else I need to check?

Hi bruce_77,

Have a look at the following link that pertains to your question.  I believe it should work for you, however I am unable to test as I do not have enchange 2010 available.

Hi there

No, the question's not related to CAS servers at all, but thanks anyway!
To see any active databases on server MbxServer1:
Get-mailboxDatabase | where { $_.Server.Name -eq 'MbxServer1'}

To move all active mailboxDatabase on a server (let's say MbxServer1) to all other available mailbox servers:
Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -Server MbxServer1
To move DB1 to Mbxserver2
Move-ActivemailboxDatabase DB1 -ActivateOnServer MbxServer1

Thanks neothwin

Do you know how I would be able to see all the users on a specific server though?
