Hello

I have setup 2 MBX servers and configured a DAG with them. (Exchange 2010 Ent. SP1)
Got 8 databases up and running and all of them have a copy on the other server.
Evertime when I move a mailbox from one DB to an other, a disconnected mailbox
is left in the old database. Even when both databases are up and runnung on the same host.
So when I move a mailbox in every mailbox once, then I have 7 disconnected mailboxes.

Any ideas about this issue?

Hi,

I have seen a similar issue - I believe that it happens when the user connects to the mailbox during the move.

It is nothing to worry about - the disconnected mailbox will be removed when the deleted mailbox retention time runs out.

Hi Leif

Thanks for your answer. The strange thing is that it happens when there is no user connection. My problem is that when I want to move a Mailbox because of storage reason, that I don't get the free space immediately. My only solution would be to delete the disconnected mailbox by myself. But I think that can't be the way Microsoft want's Exchange to work.

Look in to the SP1 release notes. Microsoft did this on purpose in SP1 as a safety measure incase a problem occurred during the move. The disconnected mailbox will get deleted at the end of your Deleted Mailbox Retention time or there is a PS command you can run to purge it ahead of time. Sorry I don't have it handy but you should be able to find it.

You can change the deleted items/mailbox retention period to 0 on that mailbox store, save it, and run the cleanup agent and that will remove the left over mailboxes.
