Exercise 1 - Managing Recovery of Mailbox Databases

One of the very important tasks that you need to perform as an Exchange Server administrator is to recover mailboxes in scenarios of mailbox failures. You may need to require the full mailbox database from a backup that you have taken or from the recovery database that you have created when creating the database. However, many mailbox failure scenarios do not require you to do a full database backup. For example, if a mailbox has been deleted by mistake or has been temporarily disabled for a specific reason, you will need to recover the mailbox so that the users can continue with their work. You can recover a database using the Exchange Admin Center tool or the Exchange Management Shell.

In this exercise, in the first task, you will disable a mailbox using the Exchange admin center and the Exchange Management Shell.

In the second task, you will connect a disabled mailbox to the new user using the Exchange admin center and the Exchange Management Shell.

In the third task, you will delete a mailbox, restore the entire mailbox and restore a specific mailbox folder using Exchange admin center and the Exchange Management Shell.

Learning Outcomes

  • Disable a mailbox
