  • Vijay - I also don't know the answer, but, in fooling around with options, needing to "logfile path" also, as well as the DB path, I figured "... | select logfilepath" - but NO, it only shows 'blank space;' instead, for all "paths," I just tried: "get-mailboxdatabase -status | select *path" and, BAM! That gives all paths, but NOT "public folders." :(

  • Sorry, I wasn't "signed in" when I commented on Vijay's older question: Vijay - I also don't know the answer, but, in fooling around with options, needing to "logfile path" also, as well as the DB path, I figured "... | select logfilepath" - but NO, it only shows 'blank space;' instead, for all "paths," I just tried: "get-mailboxdatabase -status | select *path" and, BAM! That gives all paths, but NOT "public folders." :( So, 'wildcard' (asterisk) lets you query all the various paths, but still not "public folders." Ugh!

  • good one
