Hi.

When running Export-Mailbox and Import-Mailbox against my E2k7 SP1 Server from my WinXP workstation with E2k7 SP1 x32 Management tools installed correctly, I receive an error that puzzles me.

"Export-Mailbox : Database 'MAILSERVER\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database' is offline."

How would you suggest I resolve this problem?  What am I overlooking or not addressing?  I am logged in as the Exchange Administrator and have created the necessary pemissions on the mailboxes as far as I can tell.

Warm Regards,
Jim

Hi.

Not so silly, I checked and the database is indeed mounted.  There are no errors in the application log on the PC running the tools/console I am performing the operation from.  Thanks for your help.

I am having this same issue.  I am trying to export a users mailbox and it reports that the Mailbox Database is offline.  I checked and it shows up as being online.  Export-Mailbox : Database 'MAILSERVER\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database' is offline."  No errors in the application log.  What is the exbpa tool?

I found and ran the exbpa tool.  It returned 2 errors:

  1. Exchange Store does not start:
'The 'Services' string type value located in 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Setup\Services' registry key is missing or inaccessible. The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service will not start. As a result, all services that depend on this service will not be able to start. Please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285116 for more information.

   2.  Paging file larger than Physical Memory

I checked and everything in that KB is correct.  The string exists and SYSTEM has full control over it. 

Any help would be appreciated.
