Hello, I am logged in as administrator who is also organization manager and I am trying to recover Mailbox Database Exchange server name is EXCHANGE2013 Database location is default location and I recovered Mailbox and logs to c:RDB1 from backup Here are the commands I ran so far:
    1. New-MailboxDatabase -recovery -name RDB -server EXCH2013 -EdbFilePath "C:RDB1Mailbox Database 1019791786.edb" -LogFolderPath "C:RDB1"
    2. eseutil  /r E00 /i /d
    3. Mount-Database RDB
Now I try to run the command Get-Mailbox -Database "Mailbox Database 1019791786" | Restore-Mailbox -RecoveryDatabase RDB to finish recovering I am getting error message.
Get-Mailbox -Database "Mailbox Database 1019791786" is returning results.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As you’re using Exchange 2013, you need little bit modification in existing Powershell command. Use New-MailboxRestoreRequest instead of Restore-Mailbox. Restore-Mailbox command is not supported by Exchange 2010/2013. Now, the new Powershell will be-

Get-Mailbox -Database “Mailbox Database 1019791786” | New-MailboxRestoreRequest -RecoveryDatabase RDB

    Hii...

    Do some modification in the powershell commamnds..
    Let's take an example..
    The following example illustrates creating a recovery database that will be used to recover DB1.edb(assumed) and its log files, which are located at E:\Databases\RDB1(assumed).


    New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name <RDBName> -Server <ServerName> -
    EdbFilePath "E:\Databases\RDB1\DB1.EDB" -LogFolderPath "E:\Databases\RDB1"

    For complete procedure of recovering database, follow this blog..

    If they are from the same org then you can use database portability. Do the users who had mailboxes in that already have new mailboxes on the new server? You could mount that old DB in a recovery DB and export the content.

    This article explains what a RDB is, and then at the bottom has a couple links showing how to create one and use one.
