Some tips for me and other

Exchange 2010 + Re-index DB

Issue: Users can’t find some e-mails with searching

The Internet suggest several ways to resolve the issue like:

Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy –Identity ‘DB2’ –CatalogOnly


1. stop the Exchange Search Indexer and Search service

2. go to the location of the mailbox database.

3. there should be a folder called catalog{GUID}. Delete the folder

4. Restart the Exchange Search Indexer and Search service. This will recreate the catalog{GUID}

But the best solution in my opinion:

cd “program files\microsoft\exchange server\v14\scripts”

ResetSearchIndex.ps1 “Mailbox Database 1”
