Example two in Get-Help Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Examples claims that you cn get a PF database by Server\DB.

In Exchange 2007, I can.

In Exchange 2010 SP1, I cannot.

I receive the error:
Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'Identity'. Cannot convert value " Server\PfDB" to type " Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter" . Error: " 'Server\PfDB' is not a valid value for the identity.

Is this a bug, or an error in the documentation? In other wors, did the Exchange team remove this on purpose?

Get-PublicFolderDatabase without patrameters DOES show my DB and Server as being correct

For PF DB on 2010 you shouldn't need the Server\ portion since DB names are unique throughout the org.Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, Exchange

Sure, but the documentations says you can use Server\DB

I just want to know if it's a BUG that you cannot, or a Documentation error.

Saying " Do it another way" doesn't really answer the question ;)

There are a few places where Server\DB or Server\SG\DB is still necessary for legacy interaction, but any command being issued aganst a 2010 server should only need the DB name unless you're working with Database Copy cmdlets, which may need DBName\ServerWithCopy. So while the documentation is probably technically correct, it may benefit by adding a couple more details. The key is all DB names must be unique in the org with 2010.Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, Exchange

I think we are saying the same thing, in different words.

I agree that you don't need the Server\DB syntax.

Certainally, the name must be unique within the org. New-PublicFolderDatabase documentation agrees with us on that.

I just want the documentation on Get-PublicFolderDatabase to be correct.

Get-Help Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Detailed

<snip>

-Identity <DatabaseIdParameter>
The Identity parameter specifies a public folder database. You can use the following values:
* GUID
* Distinguished name (DN)
* Server\database name
* Database name
If you don't specify the server name, the cmdlet searches for databases on the local server. If you have multip
le databases with the same name, the cmdlet retrieves all databases with the same name in the specified scope.

<snip>

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998827.aspx shows the same thing.

All I'm saying is that I think it is correct, depending on what server you're executing it against. :) I agree it could use a clarifying statement.Microsoft Premier Field Engineer, Exchange

From Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2007 I need Server\SG\DB

I cannot find any instance in 2010 where Server\DB works.

I will just mark it down as a " Feature"
