I need to check where each Exchange 2010 database is storing the EDB file and log files.
we have 2 mailbox servers that are part of the DAG.
8 DB Mounted and 8 DB Healthy on each server, total of 16 Databases

I believe Exchange 2010 does not use STM database like Exchange 2000 and 2003.

I wonder if there is a powershell command that will display  each database and the location of its edb and log files location.

Thank you

All you need to do is run a simple powershell command for this...

Get-MailboxDatabase | fl

This will provide details on all of the databases in your environment. Including the EDB and Log file locations..
