Exchange Database Distribution

Exchange 2010 DAG’s we all love by now, moving databases between nodes is very easy and provides an amount of flexibility which we have not experienced before.

We do need to acknowledge however that it is pretty easy to get carried away with moving databases about, and before long lose track of where the database was actually planned to be hosted. Only yesterday did I have the pleasure of realised this on our Exchange environment so figured it was time to get a function together to report on distribution, but also help put everything back to their preferred locations

You can call to just get the current configuration and mounts

Report-MailboxDatabaseMountPreference

Or, even have the function put the databases back to the preferred host with

Report-MailboxDatabaseMountPreference –Fix $True

Feedback welcome, Enjoy.
