On one of my Exchange 2007 mailbox server I am constantly getting the following error:

Unable to update Mailbox SD in the DS. Mailbox Guid: d225d1c1-cefa-476d-b6aa-3fa582ec9195. Error Code 0x80070005

I have ran the command "get-mailbox |ft Name, Guid > c:\guid.txt" but when I search the GUID is not there.

How do I determine what mailbox this GUID is associated with and fix it?

Thanks.

I have seen this for deleted mailboxes before, hence the reason you can't find it.

You can either purge all your disconnected mailboxes or connect them all back to valid accounts 1 by 1 till the error goes away.

Thanks but how do I find the disconnected mailboxes?  I read about it having a red icon next to the mailbox but none of mine have that.

Thanks.

They should all be under the 'disconnected' container in the EMC

It says there are no items to view.  So I guess I have none.  There is no filter applied.

You can get that message when the account for a mailbox is deleted or the owning account has improper rights.

See if this helps:

Thanks, that allowed me to find the accounts in AD that owned the mailbox.  I used to exchange tasks tool in AD to remove the mailboxes as they were accounts that didn't need mailboxes.  Now when I do the filter in AD I no longer see those accounts but the error continues to appear on my Mailbox server.   What should I look at now?

Thanks.

Should also mention it appears every 1/2 hour in the application log.

Thanks.

It appears to have purged itself yesterday.  I received this event in teh event log which corresponds to the GUID that had the error.

An invalid event history watermark has been detected by background cleanup. The watermark will be deleted.
Database: 'SG\MBX_A'.
Consumer: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx''.
Mailbox: 'd225d1c1-cefa-476d-b6aa-3fa582ec9195'.
Watermark counter: '0x528612'.

Thanks for your help.
