This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2016.

Use the New-MailboxDatabase cmdlet to create a mailbox database, or a recovery database. Each database you create must have a unique name in the organization.

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

New-MailboxDatabase -Name <String> [-AutoDagExcludeFromMonitoring <$true | $false>] [-IsExcludedFromInitialProvisioning <SwitchParameter>] [-IsExcludedFromProvisioning <$true | $false>] [-IsSuspendedFromProvisioning <$true | $false>] [-OfflineAddressBook <OfflineAddressBookIdParameter>] [-PublicFolderDatabase <DatabaseIdParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery <SwitchParameter> [-Name <String>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: -Server <ServerIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-EdbFilePath <EdbFilePath>] [-LogFolderPath <NonRootLocalLongFullPath>] [-MailboxProvisioningAttributes <MailboxProvisioningAttributes>] [-SkipDatabaseLogFolderCreation <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates the mailbox database DB1. This example also uses a non-default location for the database file.

New-MailboxDatabase -Name "DB1" -EdbFilePath D:\ExchangeDatabases\DB1\DB1.edb

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 database permissions" section in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the name of the new mailbox database.

Recovery

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Recovery parameter specifies that the new database is designated as a recovery database.

Server

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the server on which you want to create the database.

AutoDagExcludeFromMonitoring

Optional

System.Boolean

The AutoDagExcludeFromMonitoring parameter specifies that the database being created should not be monitored by managed availability.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

EdbFilePath

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.EdbFilePath

The EdbFilePath parameter specifies the path to the database files. The default value is %programfiles%\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Mailbox\<Database name>.edb.

IsExcludedFromInitialProvisioning

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IsExcludedFromInitialProvisioning parameter specifies that this database is temporarily not considered by the mailbox provisioning load balancer. If the IsExcludedFromInitialProvisioning parameter is enabled, new mailboxes aren't added automatically to this database.

IsExcludedFromProvisioning

Optional

System.Boolean

The IsExcludedFromProvisioning parameter specifies whether this database is considered by the mailbox provisioning load balancer. If the IsExcludedFromProvisioning parameter is set to $true, no new mailboxes are automatically added to this database.

IsSuspendedFromProvisioning

Optional

System.Boolean

The IsSuspendedFromProvisioning parameter specifies whether this database is temporarily considered by the mailbox provisioning load balancer.

LogFolderPath

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.NonRootLocalLongFullPath

The LogFolderPath parameter specifies the folder location for log files.

MailboxProvisioningAttributes

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.SystemConfiguration.MailboxProvisioningAttributes

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

OfflineAddressBook

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OfflineAddressBookIdParameter

The OfflineAddressBook parameter specifies the associated offline address book (OAB) for the new mailbox database.

PublicFolderDatabase

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

The PublicFolderDatabase parameter specifies the associated public folder database for the new mailbox database.

SkipDatabaseLogFolderCreation

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
