New Users "leaking" to Journaling Mailbox DB

Posted on 2015-01-25
Last Modified: 2015-02-01
I did at "Get-Mailbox | Sort database, name | Format-Table name, database" and noticed that newer users are "leaking" into the database labeled "test". EXSERVER is hosting a journal mailbox, that's what the "test" database is there for.  But I don't want real users in that database as it's not part of the DAG.  How do I close a mailbox DB to new users?

You want to prevent the database name "test" being used for mailbox provisioning?
