Missing LastFullBackup Attribute on Mailbox Database..?

Posted by in Exchange, PowerShell

This is more of an annoyance if anything but I noticed today that while I could look on the Properties page of each mailbox database and see the LastFullBackup date and time this wasn’t reflected in the Get-MailboxDatabase -Server “SERVERNAME” | fl command. It was simply empty.

It seems that if you’d like to get details such as LastFullBackup, Mounted, BackupInProgress or OnlineMaintenanceInProgress you need to use the -Status parameter.

So, my command should have been:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Server "SERVERNAME" -Status | fl

I don’t know why, but that’s the way it is.
