A server can have only one public folder database.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.

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.

EdbFilePath

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EdbFilePath

The EdbFilePath parameter specifies the full path of the public folder database files.

The LogFolderPath parameter specifies the folder location for log files. The default path is <ExchangeInstallPath>\Mailbox.

WhatIf

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.

The new database must be mounted after it's created. For more information about mounting databases, see Mount a Database.
