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
