Solution

Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus | fl name, ContentIndexState

Or





$DBstatus = Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus
$DBstatus | fl name,*Content*


image


Now if we are dealing with single Database this would work





Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy "db60ssc\E1" -CatalogOnly

image


Now if we have many Databases





Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus * | where {$_.ContentIndexState -eq "Failed"}

image


To fix all





$DBstatus = Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus
$DBstatus | where {$_.ContentIndexState -eq "Failed"}

image


Now we will use Fallowing Command and append it to above command to fix content index issues








Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy –CatalogOnly

To Update all





Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus * | where {$_.ContentIndexState -eq "Failed"} | Update-MailboxDatabaseCopy –CatalogOnly

Well, It also happen to me sometimes. Most of the code I run becomes failed.

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default. See the link below for more info.
