You have to do it from a 32 bit machine (some weird outlook requirement) with Exchange Management tools installed.  

Need to run it from an Exchange Org Admin Or Exchange server admin account on the same server the mailbox is on.

You need to use the restore-mailbox command to make the RSG an online mailbox, then from there you can create the PST from the mailbox.

BTW you will also need Outlook 2007 or above that is 32bit and the OS needs to be 32Bit as well.

Well I found a third party software tool out there that you can restore emails from wether the db is mounted or if the db cannot be mounted. You can restore all of the emails or just a few, depending on what you need. I was able to export the users from the defective db to pst files and then was able to import them back into outlook..
