Topic Last Modified: 2013-04-23

Use the Mount-Database cmdlet to mount a database on a server running Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 with the Mailbox server role installed. The cmdlet mounts the database only if the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service and Microsoft Exchange Replication service are running.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

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

This example mounts the database MyDatabase.

Mount-Database -Identity ExchangeServer1.Contoso.com\MyDatabase

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox databases" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the GUID or distinguished name (DN) that represents a specific database. The Identity parameter label is optional.

AcceptDataLoss

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AcceptDataLoss parameter specifies that the command accepts the data loss caused by missing committed transaction log files without asking for user confirmation.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force parameter specifies a forced mount of an empty database. The parameter also overrides any errors or warnings during the database mount.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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