Databases role

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

The Databases management role enables administrators to create, manage, mount, and dismount mailbox databases on individual servers.

Additional scope considerations

The Move-DatabasePath cmdlet, which is included with this role, requires that the database you want to configure must be within the database scope and the database must reside on a server that's within the server scope.

Also, the Remove-MailboxDatabase cmdlet, which is also included with this role, requires that the database you want to remove must either be within the database scope or the database must reside on a server that's within the server scope. This means you control who can remove mailbox databases using either database or server scopes.
