After running the cmdlet dismount-database <database name>, the database was deleted. Are there any documented cases where a simple dismount caused a deletion of the database? I am running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 server.

thank you

There is no way that command can delete the Database until it was remove or Pipe with another command

I have a backup, we are working on that now. I'm just trying to figure out how we lost that database after it was dismounted.

thanks

Wish Marketing would stop bothering you?

Is your marketing department constantly asking for new email signature updates? Are they requesting a different design for every department? Do they need yet another banner added? Don’t let it get you down! There is an easy way to manage all of these requests...

If your too sure you ran the Dismount than just check if noone other than you was doing some activity at the same time as i havent ever heard of this command run and do delete a DB ..... this isnt even a BUG

i agree with Rancy. powershell is very safe when it comes to what the commands execute.

I still have my trans logs on the log folder from when the DB was deleted. Once I restore the edb file, should I just mount it or run eseutil /r Exx  ?

If its a restore you will have to run the Eseulti /cc and allow reply of logs from Original location only if Sequence is meet from RSG to Original location Tlogs
