Exchange Datastore

Hello Experts, We have an Exchange 2010 Server that has experienced a corrupt datastore, over time we have created new datastores and moved mailboxes to the new datastores. We're now at the point where all user mailboxes have been transfered and the last mailbox to move is the "discovery" mailbox. Is there a method of doing this and does it need to go to a specific datastore? I'm guessing the original, corrupt datasote will be marked as "default", so do we first need to mark a newly created datastore as "default" then move the discovery mailbox to it and if so how do you select another mailstore as the default?

You just need to move the arbitration mailboxes to another store. No such thing as a "default" store and it doesn't have to be called anything special.

get-mailbox -Database “Old Mailbox Database¿ -Arbitration | New-MoveRequest –TargetDatabase “New Mailbox Database¿
