Exchange 2016:- View the status of a database seeding.

Here is a quick PowerShell tip for viewing the status of database seeding. Sometimes you might have a seed running from a PowerShell window and then when you check the green progress bar is no longer visible as you might have had a refresh on domain controllers or you have a 3rd party app that kills PowerShell.

Non the less, here is a command you can run to view the progress of a store that is seeding:

  • Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus “store1” | fl Status,databaseseedstatus

I couldn’t get a screenshot of the status as my lab updates too quickly but as shown above you should see the percentage complete for the seed.

Hope it helps.
