Exchange 2010 removal DiscoverySearchMailbox
Posted on 2013-01-31
Replacing SBS 2003 with Server 2012/Exchange 2010.
Plan was to install exchange 2010 on server 2012 - move mailboxes from sbs 2003 to exchange 2010. Give server 2012 all domain roles and remove sbs 2003 from domain.
Server 2012 is installed and setup as a DC installed exchange 2010 on server and after install MMC would crash No info showed up. Wanted to remove and reinstall Exchange. Disabled the Arbitration mailboxes.
Tried to remove DiscoverySearchMailbox (get-mailbox -Identity *discovery* | Remove-Mailbox) and I get the following error message:
Active Directory operation failed on )insert FQDN of sbs2003 server). This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 000000005: SecErr: DSID-0351D15, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
