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

Use the Get-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to display information about current mailbox repair requests. Mailbox repair requests are created using the New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to detect and fix mailbox corruptions.

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

Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Identity <StoreIntegrityCheckJobIdParameter> [-Detailed <SwitchParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Database <DatabaseIdParameter> [-StoreMailbox <StoreMailboxIdParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox <MailboxIdParameter> [-Archive <SwitchParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

This example displays the value of the Identity property for all mailbox repair requests for all mailbox servers in your organization; the second command displays information about a specific mailbox repair request that was returned by the first command.

Get-MailboxDatabase | Get-MailboxRepairRequest | FT Identity
Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Identity 5b8ca3fa-8227-427f-af04-9b4f206d611f\335c2b06-321d-4e73-b2f7-3dc2b02d0df5\374289de-b899-42dc-8391-4f8579935f1f | FL

This example displays repair request information for the mailbox of Ann Beebe using the Mailbox parameter.

Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox "Ann Beebe" | FL

This example uses the Database and StoreMailbox parameters to display the Identity property of the repair request for the mailbox of Ann Beebe.

$MailboxGuid = Get-MailboxStatistics annb
Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Database $MailboxGuid.Database -StoreMailbox $MailboxGuid.MailboxGuid | FL Identity

Parameter Required Type Description




The Database parameter specifies the database on which you run this command. If you use this parameter, all mailboxes on the database are searched for corruptions. You can use the following values:

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

You can't use this parameter with the Mailbox parameter.




The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox repair request to display information about. Mailbox repair requests are identified by a complex GUID that is created when a new mailbox repair request is created. This GUID consists of a database ID, a Request ID, and a job ID. The format is <DatabaseGuid>\<RequestGuid>\<JobGuid>.




The Mailbox parameter specifies the mailbox that you want to get mailbox repair request information about. You can use the following values:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SMTP address

  • Alias

You can't use this parameter with the Database parameter.




If the associated archive mailbox was included when the mailbox repair request was created, use the Archive parameter to display information about the archive mailbox. If you don't specify this parameter, only information about the primary mailbox is returned.

You can't use this parameter with the Database parameter.




Use the Detailed parameter to display mailbox-level repair tasks associated with the repair request.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The StoreMailbox parameter specifies the mailbox GUID of the mailbox that you want to get mailbox repair request information about. Use this parameter with the Database parameter.
