Hello,
I've already accomplished this in the past but for whatever reason, I am unable to find my notes or any information on the web regarding creating an Exchange 2010 LAB with a blank database.  What I did is clone my Exchange 2010 server without the Database disks and now I would like to empty the database and re-attach it.  The only information I found regarding was creating a DialTone database but this does not allow me to connect with my existing LAB AD users to their respective empty mailboxes.  From what I recall in the past, it was a simple command, possibly ESEUTIL but not sure.  Hope that's clear and that someone can provide me with some guidance?  Thanks.

Mounting balnk has no command .... eseutil comes into picture if your trying to mount some database from old server onto a new server ..... in that case we have to check the health of the database
eseitul /mh "Location of EDB file"

If dirty we have to repair with
eseutil /p "location of EDB file"

takecoffe:  That is for Exchange 2003 and I had found it in google but I'm not sure it applies to Exchange 2010?
