I have "Completed" my 5.5 Exchange 2003 migration.  All mail migrated and 5.5 server is decomissioned but I have one mailbox that shows up in system manager with a red X next to it.  I checked the ADUC account and it did not have a mailbox assigned so I created one.  Of course, this created a new one and didn't attach to the old one which still shows up with a red X.  I can see in system manager that there are still obects in the mailbox (about 1009).  Is there any way to connect this AD user with this existing mailbox?  Thanks

Go into system manager > navigate to the server > navigate to mailboxes > right click on mailboxes and run the cleanup agent > navigate to the mailbox with a red "x" and right click on the object > select "reconnect" and then select the AD account to associate with the mailbox

Keep in mind that exchange 2003 is different than exchange 5.5 ... you can only have a 1:1 ratio of mailbox to account ... meaning if an account already has a mailbox , then you will need a different account and then assign mailbox permissions within ADUC for other users ..

If it is a resource mailbox it may have become disassociated because you didn't run NTDSNoMatch ...

For more info on what I'm talking about ... read this article (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=274173), XADM: Documentation for the NTDSNoMatch Utility
