Determine in which Exchange server and Database user mailbox exist

In Exchange 2003/Active Directory 2003, we used to openup Exchange task on the properties of AD user account and determine in which Exchange server and Database the user mailbox exist, this was helpful, because HelpDesk users can check that.
with Exchange 2010, I am not sure where to find similar function.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

You can go to the exchange management console and go to recipient configuration = mailbox.
Go to view add/remove columns and add database.
Once you add database it will show the user mailbox in which database in recipient configuration = mailbox.

similarly you can add server as well.

Ok... if I will have to install Exchange console on helpdesk computers. Does Exchange 2010 has kind of Operator console, where helpdesk can see the server and Database location of user mailboxes ? without being able to do any modification?

Yes you can install Exchange management console on desktop machine but they should be 64 bit.

The Exchange Server 2010 management tools can be installed on a computer running one of the following operating systems:

¦Windows Vista 64-bit with Service Pack 2
¦Windows 7 64-bit
¦Windows Server 2008 64-bit with Service Pack 2
¦Windows Server 2008 R2
