Use the Mount-Database cmdlet to mount a database in a storage group on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Mailbox server. The cmdlet will mount the database only if the Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store service is running.


mount-Database -Identity <DatabaseIdParameter> [-AcceptDataLoss <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To run the Mount-Database cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID or distinguished name that represents a specific database. You can also include the server name by using the format ServerName\StorageGroup. The Identity parameter label is optional.

AcceptDataLoss

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AcceptDataLoss parameter causes the command to accept the data loss caused by missing committed transaction log files without asking for user confirmation.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Include the Force parameter to force the creation of an empty database without asking for user confirmation.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You do not have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.
