Moving mailbox to new exchange 2010 database where old database is not available

Help!!!!

I have an Exchange server which went down this week and I cannot get to the data, I have configured a new server and installed Exchange server and all seems to be OK i.e. all users exist and I have a database mounted. My question is can I move the mailboxes over to the new database any way? I have tried an internal move request but to no avail I get a 'watson' dump error message...

Need help fast please....

Your trying to move users info if so

Get-Mailbox | Set-Mailbox -TargetDatabase "New DB Name"

OK have tried that but I get the error message stating that the objects have been correupted and in an inconsistent state then I get a warning after each user stating that Database is mandatory on user mailbox
Ohk lets do this

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "DN of OU" (basically a command that will give me list of mailboxes)

Once i have the output from first command i pipe with

| Set-Mailbox -TargetDatabase "DB Name"

One thing if the users were working in cache then possibly ask them to make that to PST before they resync their Outlooks as then data might be lost :)

Try one more thing ...

Get-User "UserName" | Set-Mailbox -TargetDatabase "DB Name"

I had already done the PST thing from the old server as they were already in cached mode so thank god that I did that before the server crashed...

Tried the last thing but still got same messages....

No suitable solution was provided other than what I did myself
