Hello!  I'm trying to disable the arbitration mailboxes, and I've succeeded in two out of three.  The third says "Exchange can't remove the arbitration mailbox "/..yadayadayada" because it's the last one in the organization.  Removal generates a similar error.

I would prefer to disable, because I am reinstalling the Exchange, but at this point any commands that actually work... Google isn't helping, I keep turning up commands that either no longer work or want additional input from me.  Anyone have the correct procedure/syntax to do this?

TIA!

Sorry about the lack of detail in my post, I just reread it and realized I didn't post the commands I was using...  anyway I found what I needed... Get-Mailbox -Arbitration | Disable-Mailbox -Arbitration -DisableLastArbitrationMailboxAllowed
