Last week we upgraded Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010.

Now we find we need to re-import some of the mailboxes from the 2007 database.

Can I mount the 2007 database in 2010 ?


What I did:

took the edb file from Exchange 2007

Ensured it was in a Clean Shutdown State

Copied it to the exchange 2010 server

Ran the following EMS script:

New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name “RecoveryDatabase01” -Server NEW-MAIL -EdbFilePath “C:\source-edb-file\mailbox database.edb” -LogFolderPath “C:\source-edb-file\logs”



I have tried to mount the .edb file but it fails with error

MapiExceptionCallFailed.

Unable to mount Database - (hr=0x80004005, ec=-1213)

I have deleted the logs and re-tried but same error.

Any Ideas Please,

Regards,

Paul
