Remove recurring calendar event created by account that no longer exists
Posted on 2014-10-23
We recently did a full network migration that included moving an off-line exchange database to a new exchange server using Lepide Exchange migration tool. It read all the mail items in the old .edb file and moved the items into the new mailbox associated with that user.
Of course, the new AD and mail database has all new user accounts, so for the recurring events that were moved over the originator of the event no longer really exists in the database, and the user can not delete the meeting and can not send a cancellation notice because they aren't the 'original' creator, as far as AD is concerned.
Is there any 'easy' way to delete this recurring event?
