We had a problem during a mailbox move process and one mailbox seems to have been created on the destination server/store but still exists on the source server/store. Now attempts to move this mailbox fail (I assume because the destination mailbox already exists). The mailbox appears as disconnected (red X) in ESM with 0 size/items. Attempting to reconnect the mailbox to an account generates the following error: "This operation can not be performed because this mailbox was already reconnected to an existing user." followed by: This object has not been replicated to the destination server yet. Wait for replication to complete and try again. Operation: Updating Mailbox Resources on server 'servername'... ID no: c1031731 Exchange System Manager Trying to purge the account gives the following error: "The operation cannot be performed because this mailbox was already reconnected to an existing user" ID no: c1038af9 Exchange System Manager Nothing is logged on the Exchange Server event logs. The source mailbox is intact and the user is accessing it from there without a problem. We would like to decommision this server (the reason for the move in the first place) but I can get rid of the phantom mailbox on the new server to move this mailbox over. Please help... _____ Frank Wakelin Network Analyst direct tel.: 604.640.4096 fax: 604.622.5911 fwakelin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> <http://www.blgcanada.com/nav/mainLogo.gif> Borden Ladner Gervais LLP 1200 Waterfront Centre 200 Burrard Street, P.O.
