Recover mailbox database Exchange 2010

http://msexchangeguru.com/2010/05/23/exchange2010-recovery-database/

I am using the above linked article in order to recover an Exchange 2010 database on a newly reimaged SBS 2011 Server.  However when I reach Step 7 in the article, I'm stuck!

7. Now open Shell and type the command as shown:
  Get-MailboxStatistics -Database RecoverDB

 This will show the list of mailboxes in that database.


 When I type in the cmd, instead of displaying a list of mailboxes in that database, shell just goes right back to the following C:\Windows\system32 as if Shell is looking for another cmd:

C:\Windows\system32>get-mailboxstatistics -database recoverdb
C:\Windows\system32>


What gives?

I'd like to add that I know there is mailbox data in this database since it shows 14,557,248 KB in size.

Are you running the cmdlet using command prompt (cmd)?

That command is a powershell command. Are you typing that at the Exchange Management Shell prompt? If you are in Powershell, has it connected to the mail server? It should say something like "VERBOSE: Connected to yourmailservername" just above the prompt when you first connect.

As I can see steps are right and easier to follow. I don't think any thing is wrong with powershell command. Just try one more time after restart Exchange.

If still doesn't work, Comment on same tutorial, hope someone from Mxexhangeguru will revert you shortly.
