Hi guys,

Have an issue with exchange 2010 looking for a mail server that no longer exists. Its referencing a database with this error:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
The mailbox database 'Mailbox Database 1103592073' cannot be deleted.

Mailbox Database 1103592073
Failed
Error:
The database object 'Mailbox Database 1103592073' in Active Directory has been corrupted and is in an inconsistent state. Unable to find any server hosting a copy of this database.


And a mailbox move request with this error:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Action 'Clear Move Request' could not be performed on object 'ANS'.

ANS
Failed
Error:
You must provide a value for this property.

How do I remove these objects?

Could you give few more information. I assume that you are trying to do the move request cleanup activity(if not please specify when are you getting this error).

Are you able to see the database 'Mailbox Database 1103592073' in EMC or by running Get-MailboxDatabase command?
Are you using DAG among the mailbox servers?

Ensure that the database is active (mounted) in any of the Exchange 2010 Server(how many MBX servers are there?).  If already showin as Active, then dismount and remount again to test further.

Sorry for not answering this sooner, I ended up working it out. someone tried to do a transition to 2010 before i started and just wiped out the server when it didn't work out for them. so it was referencing that server.

So all good, and thanks for your help
