Unavailable database mailboxes

I have a problem with the database restore. I had a backup .edb files .chk and .log files. For recovery I used the eseutil. What I've done. The Exchange management console I created a database with the same name which had been deleted accidentally. Specified the folder to use. Left it dismounted. Also got the message "this database can be overwritten by a restore". Next, I copied .edb .chk files in the folder of this database. And then I mounted the new database DB2 and it said it mounted successfully. There are mailboxes in the .edb file. The size of this file weighs in at 100GB. But the fact that I don't see these boxes in the settings "Recipient Configuration > Mailbox" when I drill down to this new database. How do I get these mailboxes to show back up?

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

Try Disable the mailbox, then “Connect-mailbox” for them accordingly.

First mount existing DB and allow overwrite checked on the DB properties.

Then run in powershell:

Get-MailboxDatabase
| Clean-MailboxDatabase

Then go into a DC and open AD Sites & Services and trigger Replicate Now on a DC within each relevant group of DC’s.

Check Disconnected Mailboxes in the EMC and you should start to see the disconnected mailbox users.

Then run this command, changing the database accordingly:

get-mailboxstatistics
-database DB2 | where { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | connect-mailbox
-database DB2 -DomainController subDC.subdomain.com

Open in new window

– Use DomainController it if you’re erroring out on all the users and suspect the users are in the sub-domain.

Errors will also be reported for those AD users who are “Disabled” in AD

    That file is beyond repair. I changed the extension to .XLS and forced it to open up and there is just gibberish inside of it. Do you have a backup or older version you can go back to?
