You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-PublicFolderDatabase -Name "My Public Folder Database" -EdbFilePath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\PFDB01.edb" -LogFolderPath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\PFDB01"

This example creates the public folder database PFDB01.

Required Parameters

-Name

The Name parameter specifies the name of the new public folder database. The name must be unique to your entire organization.

Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010
-Server

A server can have only one public folder database.

Type:ServerIdParameter

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.
