Need to delete Mailbox store that contains System Attendant

We are cleaning out some whitespace in our mailbox stores.

Rather then defrag each mailbox store, I have been moving all the mailboxes to new stores and deleting the old store.  This has worked perfectly for all except our First store which contains the System Attendant.  

I have moved all mailboxes from this store and now need to delete the store.  How can I move the System Attendant to a new store?  I would eventuallyl like to move it back to the first mailbox store one I delete and recreate it but first need to understand how I can move it.

Thanks in advance.

You don't move the system attendant mailbox.
After you have dropped the store that contains the system attendant mailbox, restart the information store service. That will recreate the system attendant mailbox automatically.

If you are unable to drop the store because Exchange claims that there is a mailbox on the store, then it is NOT the system attendant mailbox or any of the other system mailboxes causing that error. It is a genuine mailbox, probably belonging to a user or other mail enabled object that has never been used.

Thanks for the information.  I am still trying to remove orphaned mailboxes so that I can drop the store, but the information provided seems like it will work once I get this dropped.

I will keep you updated.

Thanks for the info.  I finally got all mailboxes deleted and got the time to shut down those services so that I could delete the mailbox store.  Once I restarted the services, the system attendant was recreated.

Thanks for the help!
