It looks like the databases were excluded from provisioning. Can you please run the following commands in exchange

Get-mailboxdatabase | ft name,isexcludedfromprovisioning

Get-mailboxdatabase | ft name,issuspendedfromprovisioning

If the answer is true than that would be the culprit. Run the following commands to enable it depending on which query provided the True answer

Set-MailboxDatabase "MailboxDatabaseName" -IsSuspendedFromProvisioning $false

Set-MailboxDatabase "MailboxDatabaseName" -IsExcludedFromProvisioning $false
