Hello Experts,

I am finalising a SBS2003 -> SBS2011 migration and dismounting the sbs 2003 mail store, but it just sits there and doesn't do anything, how long would I expect to wait for it to dismount so I can delete it?

This is first time I have done something like this so just wanted some feedback?

    if yes, then you need to go through properly decomision your sbs 2003.
