Re-link Existing Exchange 2010 email archive to newly created mailbox.

Because of a mailbox corruption issue, I had to disabled my mailbox account in exchange 2010 and I added a new mailbox to my AD account. Now I need to re-link my existing archive from my previous mailbox to the new one. Does anyone know how to do this?

Can you open the old mailbox at all? I would think you may want to try to export the old mailbox, as a file, choose PST and then you can open the PST underneath the new mailbox and open the old content.

I did export the old mailbox to a pst first via the cmlet command and then import it to the new mailbox. The export doesn't export the archived content.

open exchange system manager -> Recipient config -> Disconnected mailbox you should see there "Online Archive - your name" right click reconnect to primary mailbox

I tried that, but since the original mailbox is not attached to my account, I get the following error:
"Couldn't find object "/O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS /CN=ORNELO" Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object.

Thinking I might have to call Microsoft on this one...

That should be easy to fix

1. backup your current mailbox just in case
2. run adsiedit.msc -> connect to the default naming context and find your user
3. right click properties and find LegacyExchangeDN copy its value to a notepad and replace it by "/O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS /CN=ORNELO"
4. click ok
5. if you have more than one DC wait a bit for replication to happen
6. try again
