Renaming Mailbox Database in Exchange Server 2010/2013/2016

When we Install Exchange Server by Default Databases will created with default Name.


But we need to change the Database name based on your organization requirement, performing such task there is small command which will change the Database Name


Open Exchange Admin Center checked the Databases and Database with Default names




Run the below command


Command :

Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity “Mailbox DatabaseName” | Set-MailboxDatabase -Name “DatabaseName that you want to change”¬†




Here  in my scenario I have changed 2 Databases as shown below


Then run the below command


You will see the Database Name that you have changed based on your requirement
