about this command:

.\setup /m:Install /Roles:ca,mb,mt /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms /InstallWindowsComponents /DBFilePath:"C:\DB01\DB01.edb" /LogFolderPath:"C:\DB01\Logs" /MdbName:"DB01"

Open in new window


I haven't installed like this, I used the GUI.
There is no DB created. Can I do this manually at every time ?

Hi,

as per MS article, it is supported to use [/DbFilePath:<Edb file path>] and [/LogFolderPath:<log folder path>] switches.

Yes I know the command.
But my question is, can I create the DB also later on ? Because I already have installed EXCH2013.

Oh, sorry.

Yes, you can create DB after you install Exchange. If you have Exchange standard, then you can create 5 database, or better said, you can have 5 mounted DB.

To create DB, just log to EAC --> Servers --> Databases --> Add new DB

OR via Exchange Shell:
New-MailboxDatabase -Name "<DB_Name>" -EdbFilePath "D:\ExchangeDatabases\DB1\DB1.edb" -LogFolderPath "X:\ExchangeDatabaseLog\DB1\"

Ivan.

For database creation you can use the following:

New-MailboxDatabase -Name "MailboxDatabase01" -EdbFilePath D:\DatabaseFiles\MailboxDatabase01.edb -LogFolderPath F:\DatabaseFiles\LogFolder

After successfully creating the Database we need to mount it to the Exchange server with the following command.

Mount-Database -Identity "MailboxDatabase01"

Every time you install Exchange (mailbox role) there will be a default mailbox database created on that server no matter how you install it.

for any additional DB you will need to create it manually either with the GUI or with the new-mailboxdatabase command
