Database can’t be mounted

I got this below error when tried to mount the mailbox database in standalone Exchange Server 2010 server.


“Database ‘First Mbx DB’ can’t be mounted on server ‘Exchange-01.mydomain.com’ due to a previous error: Failed to determine the mount status of the active database copy. Verify that the underlying cause of the error has been corrected before attempting to mount the database. The error can be ignored and mount allowed if Mount-Database is reissued with the –Force switch”


I restarted the ‘Microsoft Exchange AD Topology’ service on that server and mounted using Mount-Database –identity “First Mbx DB” –Force command.
