Can dismount-database delete a mailstore?

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

should only be deleted if you did a remove-database. do you have a backup?

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.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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
