Working on a client site with a long established EV environment targeting Exchange 2003 servers.
When running the "Display policies assigned to mailboxes" wizard on the Exchange target tree I've encountered the following somewhat odd problem.
There's a significant number of mailboxes listed with no provisioning policy assigned.
Some are disconnected / disassociated mailboxes, waiting for the cleanup agent to purge them.
But others don't seem to exist in either the Exchange system manager mail stores or the domain active directory.
Where is EV getting the information for this wizard from? Where to look in AD / LDAP to find these mailboxes?
It would be nice to explain to client where these are coming from and satisfy them that all 'real' mailboxes are being archived.
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
That dociment is just like I said ;)
4. After all the steps, you must run the provisioning task in order to re-create the whole ExchangeMailboxEntry table with the updated information.
So the gist of it is that the EV provisioning task builds the ExchangeMailboxEntry table based on Exchange mail-enabled Active Directory accounts, but never actually clears out old entries once the Exchange mailbox and AD account ceases to exist.
Good to know and possibly a useful source of information on historic AD accounts.
Thanks for the feedback.
