Error while removing mailbox export  request

Posted on 2012-08-16

In Exchange 2010 (SP1) We perform mailbox exports before deleting mailboxes to be sure that all of the mailbox content is accessible should the need arise. Now I want to remove the old mailbox export requests but unknowingly I deleted the Active Directory account before removing the mailbox export request. When I try remove a MailboxExport request from shell,  I get an error “Can't connect to mailbox database ''.  Check that it is accessible, and then try again.”  We want this error to be taken care of because at one point we will be deleting the database after moving the users other database. I know that if there is active MailboxExport requests associated with this database, I won’t be able to remove the database

    See if you can remove the requests with ADSIEdit.
