Create New Exchange 2016 Mailbox Database using PowerShell

New Mailbox Database using PowerShell

In this post I will create a new Mailbox Database for Exchange 2016 using PowerShell.

Available Syntax for the cmdlet “New-MailboxDatabase”

To get started we need to launch the Exchange PowerShell console and the run the following cmdlet.

Next is to mount the newly created DB.

Lets verify that DB and Logs is created in the correct location before we start creating new Mailboxes on this DB.

Lets go a head and create a mailbox and select the newly created DB.


Sharing is caring!
