Exchange 2007 cannot export pst files via its powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to export pst files from Exchange server 2007.

    This script used to work perfectly.
    Export-Mailbox -Identity paddy -PSTFolderpath C:\pst\

    But now I am getting an error message saying this
    Export-Mailbox : The specified mailbox database "SRV03\First Storage Group\Mail
    box Database" does not exist.
    At line:1 char:15
    + Export-Mailbox  <<<< -identity paddy -PSTFolderPath C:\pst\

    MoveType                         : ExportToPST
    MoveStage                        : Initialization
    StartTime                        : 01/01/0001 12:00:00 AM
    EndTime                          : 01/01/0001 12:00:00 AM
    StatusCode                       : -2147467259
    StatusMessage                    : The specified mailbox database "SRV03\First
                                       Storage Group\Mailbox Database" does not exi
                                       st.

                                       ogging\MigrationLogs\export-Mailbox20140527-
                                       155543-8040336.xml

    what would be the problem?

    I checked that the account has full permission so permission would not be the issue.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    First, please check if the mailbox database mentioned in the error message is mounted.

    Besides, please check if you can export other mailbox using the Export-Mailbox cmdlet.

    If all mailbox are affected, please check if you have the Exchange Server Administrator role assigned.

    1. Open EMC.
    2. Select the Organization Configuration node from the console tree.
    3. Please check the permissions assigned in the result pane. If there is no the Exchange Server Administrator role, please add it to check the result.

    Best regards,
    Belinda

  • Hi

    Is the database online?

    did you migrate or busy migrating from Exchange 2003? Is that one available or online?

  • do you get any output when you run the commands below on Exchange Management Shell ?

    Get-MailboxDatabase "SRV03\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database"
    
    Get-Mailbox -Database "SRV03\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" -ResultSize Unlimited
