For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.


Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity <MailboxExportRequestIdParameter> [-IncludeReport <SwitchParameter>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -RequestQueue <DatabaseIdParameter> [-IncludeReport <SwitchParameter>] [-RequestGuid <Guid>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>

This example returns the default statistics for the second export request for Tony Smith. The type of information returned by default includes name, mailbox, and status.

Copy Code
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport1


This example returns statistics for Tony Smith's mailbox and exports the report to a .csv file.

Copy Code
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport | Export-CSV \\SERVER01\ExportRequest_Reports\Tony_Exportstats.csv


This example returns additional information about the export request for Tony Smith's mailbox by using the IncludeReport parameter and by pipelining the results to the Format-List command. (The export request was created using the New-MailboxExportRequest.)

Copy Code
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\LegalHold -IncludeReport | Format-List 


This example returns default statistics for an export request being processed by the instance of MRS running on the server CAS01. This command only returns information for export requests currently being processed by an instance of MRS. If the request is already finished, it won't be returned.

Copy Code
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -RequestQueue MailboxDatabase01


This example returns additional information for all the export requests that have a status of Failed by using the IncludeReport parameter, and then saves the information to the text file AllExportReports.txt.

Copy Code
Get-MailboxExportRequest -Status Failed | Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -IncludeReport | Format-List > AllExportReports.txt

Detailed Description

You can pipeline the Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics cmdlet from the Get-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet.

The RequestQueue parameter syntax set is for debugging purposes only.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Import Export" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the export request. By default, export requests are named <alias>\MailboxExportX (where X = 0–9). If you specified a name for the export request when it was created by using the New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet, use the following syntax: <alias>\<name>.

This parameter can't be used with the RequestGuid, or RequestQueue parameters.




The RequestQueue parameter specifies the mailbox database on which the mailbox or archive of the request resides. You can use one of the following values:

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

This parameter can't be used in conjunction with the Identity parameter.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The IncludeReport switch specifies whether to return additional details, which can be used for troubleshooting.




The RequestGuid parameter specifies the unique identifier for the export request. To find the export request GUID, use the Get-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet. If you specify the RequestGuid parameter, you must also specify the RequestQueue parameter. You can't use this parameter in conjunction with the Identity parameter.
