Update-StoreMailboxState

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-05

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the Update-StoreMailboxState cmdlet to synchronize the mailbox state for a mailbox in the Exchange mailbox store with the state of the corresponding Active Directory user account.

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

Update-StoreMailboxState -Database <DatabaseIdParameter> -Identity <StoreMailboxIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example updates the mailbox state for a mailbox located on the mailbox database MDB01 and whose GUID is 4a830e3f-fd07-4629-baa1-8bce16b86d88.

Update-StoreMailboxState -Database MDB01 -Identity 4a830e3f-fd07-4629-baa1-8bce16b86d88

This example updates the mailbox state for all mailboxes on the mailbox database MDB02.

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database MDB02 | ForEach { Update-StoreMailboxState -Database $_.Database -Identity $_.MailboxGuid -Confirm:$false }

This example updates the mailbox state for all disconnected mailboxes on the mailbox database MDB03.

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database MDB03 | Where { $_.DisconnectReason -ne $null } | ForEach { Update-StoreMailboxState -Database $_.Database -Identity $_.MailboxGuid -Confirm:$false }

The Update-StoreMailboxState cmdlet forces the mailbox store state in the Exchange store to be synchronized with Active Directory. In some cases, it's possible that the store state for a mailbox to become out-of-sync with the state of the corresponding Active Directory user account. This can result from Active Directory replication latency. For example, if a mailbox-enabled user account is disabled in Active Directory but isn't marked as disabled in the Exchange mailbox store. In this case, running the Update-StoreMailboxState will synchronize the mailbox store state with the state of the Active Directory user account and mark the mailbox as disabled in the mailbox store. You can use this command to troubleshoot issues that may be a result when the store state for a mailbox is unexpected or if you suspect that the store state is different than the state for the corresponding Active Directory account.
