I would like to confirm that there are NO mailboxes associated with a datastore/database before I unmount it.  I am trying to cleanup what an old admin did.

If you want to check from EMC.

Recipient Configuration =>> Mailbox.

Then go to the View menu >> Add/Remove Columns.

Add the "Database" column. Click Ok. You can then sort this column alphabetically.

I did do that and saw no mailbox associated with that database.  

Should I un-mount the database first to see if that causes any issues?  I know that you can name a DB anything, however this setup was a port over from Exchange 2003 and the database of concern is called Archive1.  We do not do any archiving here.

If you don't see any users with that database name then you should be good to go. However, there may be a Arbitration Mailbox on that database, especially if it is the first database that was in the environment. Check this article on how to find that.

Otherwise you should be good to dismount.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

Ran the command

and it appears that all my Arbitration Mailboxes are located on a database that I am keeping.

Si I feel confident to proceed
