How do I find out if Exchange Search is working for a particular Mailbox user or enabled on a Mailbox Database?

  • To test whether Exchange search is working for a particular user’s mailbox, run the following command (needs perms to write to the mailbox)
Test-exchangeSearch <mailbox name>
  • To see which Mailbox databases are enabled for Exchange Search, run the following command:
Get-MailboxDatabase |select name, indexenabled
