So I found this command on technet.

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database Mailbox2 | where {$_.DisconnectReason -eq "SoftDeleted"} | foreach {Remove-StoreMailbox -Database $_.database -Identity $_.mailboxguid -MailboxState SoftDeleted -confirm:$false}

Open in new window


It sort of works in that it will remove some of the soft deleted boxes, but I have to run it severl times, and then it will usually leave me with a dozen or so to manually remove. I'm splitting a DB, and every move leaves a dc'd maiblox. This is the error I get.

Pipeline not run because a pipeline is already running. Pipelines cannot be run concurrently.

Hi,


Try by writing a .ps1 script file with these lines:

$MBList = Get-MailboxStatistics -Database Mailbox2 | where {$_.DisconnectReason -eq "SoftDeleted"}

$MBList | ForEach {
    $MB = $_
    Remove-StoreMailbox -Database $MB.database -Identity $MB.mailboxguid -MailboxState SoftDeleted -confirm:$false
}

Open in new window



Have a good day.
