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.
If this doesn't work then try to restore via Exchange Server Recovery Toolbox. This tool may help you. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/exchange_server_recovery.html
