It's worse than that though, Al.  PSS have seen performance issues with
loads of 9548s.  I've knocked up an article on it some time ago:

Any reason why you chose to disable the account (Active Directory account)
vs. deleting?  I would think that disassociating the mailbox from the
account would be a good answer in this case.  Will that work in your
environment?
 
The problem I have with ignoring the errors is that it leads to bad habits
such as ignoring other entries or losing things in the sea of entries.  I'm
not particululary fond of that concept as I've been bitten long ago.

Wondering how some are dealing with deleted user accounts and their email
accounts? I show a ton of warnings in the Application viewer stating event
ID 9548. 

Disabled user /O=domain/ou=site/cn=recipients/cn=username does not have a
master account SID. Please use AD MMC to set an active account as this
user's master account. 

 

We have a policy in place to leave the disabled for 30 days. Is it best to
just ignore the errors in the event log or can the accounts themselves also
be disabled to prevent the errors from appearing? Looking at the Exchange
Tasks on the account it only gives an option to Move or Delete the mailbox.
Hopefully this doesn't come across as too dumb of a question for a response.


 

TIA
