Find disconnected mailboxes

To find disconnected mailboxes and which server the disconnected mailbox is located, in powershell you can easily search for that mailbox. However, if you have a recently disconnected mailbox, there is a step you might need to run first in order to see it.

If you have recently disconnected a mailbox, it can take some time to for it to register in Exchange. You can force a clean up of the database:

Get-mailboxdatabase | Clean-mailboxdatabase

To find disconnected mailboxes:

Get-mailboxserver | get-mailboxstatistics | where {$_.disconnectdate -ne $null} | select displayname,database,disconnectdate

If you have a multiple domains in your forest you may need to run this first to see all disconnected mailboxes in the forest:

set-ADserversettings -viewentireforest: $true
