moving a exchange 2010 database to a new loaded server with exchange 2013

I am having trouble finding what I need to do to import this database file into 2013. I am moving from 2010 to 2013 and have the database files and logs, I have ran the eseutil to get into clean shut down but now I don't know how to get exchange 2013 to see the database so I can mount it.  Has anyone else been through this?

There is no method of moving a mailbox database to from Exchange 2010 to 2013. There is Database Portability which was released in Exchange 2010 which allows you to move a mailbox to another Exchagne 2010 Mailbox Database Server. However you cannot do this across different Exchange versions as the mailbox schema is different.

You will need to create new databases on Exchange 2013 and move the mailboxes using the EAC or powershell.

Another option would be to use a 3rd Party product and export the Mailboxes from the EDB file as a PST file.

Use Kernal Data Recovery for Exchange Server.

@Bobluis - i think you mean export the mailboxes. You cannot export the entire database file. As i have already stated that the user needs to do this from a mailbox level.

Yes. I mean exporting at mailbox level (:
