Exchange 2007 - export large mailbox data to PSTs using date range
Posted on 2013-05-30
Hi there -
I have an Exchange 2007 sp3 environment. I have a journaling mailbox that is very large (huge). I'm attempting to export the database (journal mailbox) into date range PSTs so I can import them into an email archiver unit. I am trying to use this command -
Get-Mailbox -Database 'MDB' | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath D:\PSTs -StartDate 1/1/2010 -EndDate 12/1/2010
I have the Exchange management tools (32-bit) installed on a Windows 7 machine with Outlook 2007 (per the requirement) but am getting errors in the Exchange Management Shell.
Question, does the database have to to mounted in order to use the export tool above?
The error I'm getting indicates it cannot find the database. I have mapped a network drive to the journal database, so that my command would look something like this -
Get-Mailbox -Database v:\journalstoragegroup\journaldatabase.edb | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath D:\PSTs -StartDate 1/1/2010 -EndDate 12/1/2010
It gives me an error indicating it cannot find the DB.
Can someone tell me what parameters or format I'm missing to start using this tool?
