Use the New-PublicFolderDatabase cmdlet to create public folder databases in the specified storage group.


New-PublicFolderDatabase -Name <String> -StorageGroup <StorageGroupIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-CopyEdbFilePath <EdbFilePath>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-EdbFilePath <EdbFilePath>] [-HasLocalCopy <$true | $false>] [-TemplateInstance <PSObject>] [-UseRusServer <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To run the New-PublicFolderDatabase cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator role

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

noteNote:
The new database must be mounted after it is created. For more information about mounting databases, see How to Mount a Database.
noteNote:
A server can have only one public folder database.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the name of the new public folder database.

StorageGroup

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.StorageGroupIdParameter

The StorageGroup parameter specifies the storage group that will contain the new public folder database. Valid values are

  • Name

  • GUID

StorageGroup is the only New-PublicFolderDatabase parameter that can be piped.

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 don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

CopyEdbFilePath

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EdbFilePath

The CopyEdbFilePath parameter specifies the full path of the copy of the Exchange database (.edb) files. The name of the file specified by this parameter must be identical to the file specified by the EdbFilePath parameter. If this parameter is specified, the HasLocalCopy parameter must be set to $true.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

EdbFilePath

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EdbFilePath

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

HasLocalCopy

Optional

System.Boolean

If the value of the HasLocalCopy parameter is $true, a copy of the Exchange database (.edb) file will also be created at the location that is specified in the CopyEdbFolderPath parameter.

This parameter must be set to $true if the CopyEdbFolderPath parameter is specified.

TemplateInstance

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSObject

The TemplateInstance parameter is added automatically to commands that support it. This parameter is used to clone the configuration of one object to another object. This parameter is most useful when you want to clone the exact configuration of a complex object or when you want to apply the same configuration to multiple objects.

UseRusServer

Optional

System.String

Note   This parameter is available only in Exchange 2007 SP2.

The UseRusServer parameter instructs the command to use the specified Mailbox server on which the Address List service is running to obtain and then set mailbox and Active Directory user attributes.

The Address List service is a component in the Exchange System Attendant service. The Address List service creates and maintains Exchange-specific attribute values in Active Directory. You can use the Address List service to update recipient objects in a domain by using specific information, such as address list membership and e-mail addresses.

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 don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.

 

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

In this example, the New-PublicFolderDatabase command is used to create a new public folder database named My Public Folder Database in the storage group named Second Storage Group.

Use the Mount-Database command after the New-PublicFolderDatabase command to mount the new database.

New-PublicFolderDatabase -Name "My Public Folder Database" -StorageGroup "Second Storage Group" -HasLocalCopy $true -EdbFilePath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\Mailbox\Second Storage Group\My Public Folder Database.edb" -CopyEdbFilePath "E:\Program Files\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\Mailbox\Second Storage Group\Copy\My Public Folder Database.edb"

Only the StorageGroup parameter can be piped.
