I am trying to disable some mailboxes for archiving. I run through the wizard to do it, and at the end I see that disabling was successful. However, if I run the disable mailbox wizard a second time (30 seconds, 5 minutes later, it doesn't matter) I see that those mailboxes are still available to be disabled.
The event log ID 2204 is showing up ("Archiving has been disabled for mailbox <DN>") so something is working correctly.
Do I need to disable mailboxes for archiving /before/ removing them from the provisioning group target? I wouldn't have thought so, but I'll go away and check that. Seems like a bug to me if it's true..
I'm not sure how to zap something - I was watching during a remote session but I can't remember the procedure. The mailbox is disabled now anyway after I put the user back into the target for the provisioning group. No idea if that's what caused it to work though, more testing required!
Thanks for that info Paul. I'm sure I closed the VAC and tried again. I certainly hit refresh a few times :) Anyway, the particular mailbox is now disabled after I put the user back in the provisioning group, but I don't know for sure if that fixed it. More testing is required!
Edit: Oops: 8.0 SP2
Edit 2:Ok, I've disabled my own mailbox for archiving having FIRST removed myself from the provisioning group and run the provisioning task. I have a 1 in the mbxarchivingstate column but the event log said my mailbox was disabled.
