Re-attach / mount exchange 2010 edb recovery database

I have a recovery database that i used before on MS Exchange 2010 to recover a mailbox. I later dismounted the database and also removed it from Exchange thinking that I no longer need it. But now I need to use this recovery database again for another restore, how can I reattach / mount the same recovery database again using the exchange database edb and log files?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

If you are performing a new restore, you don't want to reuse the same edb and log files. They will just get overwritten by the restore anyway. Run the following command to recreate the restore database:

New-MailboxDatabase -Recovery -Name RDB -Server “servername” -EdbFilePath "path" -LogFolderPath "path”

Refer to the following thread for some possible solutions.

I cannot create a new recovery database. I no longer have the backup files. I must reuse the old recovery database. How can I attach an old recovery database to Exchange 2010?


Use the same powershell command as above and point the -EdbFilePath to the current location of the edb file. If this does not solve the problem, you can only try luck by a third-party tool. May you have such. Alternatively, take a such as Exchange Server Recovery Toolbox. I don't know how else to help you. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/exchange_s...
