This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to view cluster continuous replication (CCR) settings for databases.

To perform the following procedures, the account you use must be delegated the 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 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. Expand Microsoft Exchange, expand Server Configuration, and then select Mailbox.

  3. In the result pane, select the mailbox server that contains the database whose configuration you want to view.

  4. In the work pane, expand the storage group that contains the database whose configuration you want to view.

  5. Right-click the database that you want to view, and then select Properties.

  6. Click the Database tab to view the configuration information. Specifically, this action allows you to view the location of the database file. The work pane also provides a column with this information.

  • Run the following command to look at properties for the database "Mailbox Store" in storage group "SG1" on server "mbx01":

    Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity "mbx01\SG1\Mailbox Store" | Fl
  • Run the following command to view database "Public Folder Store" in storage group "SG2" on server "mbx01":

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity "mbx01\SG2\Public Folder Store" | Fl

This command returns information about the database in list format, including configuration information, such as database location information.

For detailed syntax and parameter information about the cmdlets, see Get-MailboxDatabase and Get-PublicFolderDatabase.
