I'm trying to follow this technote: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH50256
The problem is that I'm failing already at step 1!
When I run this query in SQL:
FROM ExchangeMailboxEntry EME
INNER JOIN ExchangeMailboxStore EMS ON EME.MbxStoreIdentity = EMS.MbxStoreIdentity
INNER JOIN ExchangeServerEntry ESE ON ESE.ExchangeServerIdentity = EMS.ExchangeServerIdentity
WHERE ESE.ExchangeServerIdentity = 'ResultFromPrevious'
I get over 200 results. However, those mailboxes no longer even exist; these users have left our organisation a long time ago, their mailboxes were deleted, but it seems like that was never synchronised with EV. Can anyone suggest please how to clean that up? I'm trying to remove 2 Exchange servers which have no more mailboxes and no mailbox DBs on them. However EV, at least at a SQL level, still believes that there are archive-enabled mailboxes on the servers.
Any help much appreciated....
Solved! Go to Solution.
When we run a provisioning task we get a large number of event 41141 warning events. As a bit of background, we no longer archive any mailboxes; all archives are there purely for historical purposes. Newly created mailboxes are not being enabled for archiving.
So it's ok for us to just manually remove all those entries directly from the ExchangeMailboxEntry table?
We are also deleting a number of archives for users who have left, so they are marked for deletion and running the SQL query I can see that the number of items remaining for deletion are about 1.9 million and are coming down all the time, albeit slowly. Can I remove the provisioning task while all that is going on?
