Thanks, I actually found it the hard way this morning using LDP and the
manual search method.  J

Turns out whomever did the 5.5 to 2003 migration uninstalled the ADC
software, but didn't delete the connection agreements first.  So, when
exploring under  "CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=Services,
CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=org I found an entry for the Active Directory
Connector.  Renamed it (just because I always get twitchy deleting outright
from LDP or ADSIedit if I don't know for sure what it is I'm deleting), and


Oh well, live and learn.. (Now, to call up and make fun of my friend who did
the migration..)

Possibly might have some orphaned property in AD that Exchange is querying
during the mailbox creation. I would query your AD to see if there are any
references of any store information in AD. 



Export all information for your exchange config partition in AD, then search
through the text file for the name of the store that shows up when you
create a mailbox.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Weird AD/Exchange issue

One of my clients has a weird issue:


This is an Exchange Server 2003 server, and whenever we go to add a new user
through AD Users and Computers, an old Exchange 5.5 server and Private
Information Store shows up.  I see nothing in Exchange System Manager
referencing the new server, and if you try to use the Move Mailbox wizard,
it doesn't show up their either.  It ONLY shows up on the Exchange dialog
box to create an Exchange mailbox.  There are no traces of Exchange 5.5 I
can find anywhere (no SRS, no ADC, the server has been off for over two
years, etc., etc.)


Where is this coming from,  and how can I get rid of it?  Any ideas?
