Mount Exchange Database and Dismount Exchange Database


Mount Exchange Database and Dismount Exchange Database



Every mailbox database in Exchange Server 2007 is either in a mounted or dismounted state.  A dismounted Exchange database will not be accessible to the Microsoft Exchange Information Store Service, and is required for certain administrative tasks.  For example, the creation of off-line backups requires that a mailbox database first be dismounted.
This is a pretty simple task. To dismount Exchange database, select the mailbox database you have in mind and the option to “Dismount Database” will appear in the Actions panel on the right.  Click on it, and select “Yes” when asked if you are sure about this. The dismounted mailbox database appears with a grey circle with a down arrow, and users will not be able to send and receive mail from it.  To Mount Exchange database entails selecting a dismounted database and clicking on “Mount Database” option.
We hope you found this video helpful and now you know how to mount Exchange database or dismount Exchange database.
