Warning after creating shared mailbox

After creating a shared mailbox within Office 365 named "ATest" I receive the warning shown in the screenshot

"Failed to replicate mailbox:'atest' to the site...The mailbox will be available for logon in approximately 15 minutes."

What does this warning mean and what if anything do I need to do to fix it?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The warning indicates that the replication of syncing user/password was stopped. Because a shared mailbox doesn’t have a username with a password, the replication of syncing user/password will always fail whenever you create a shared mailbox. So just ignore the warning and keep going on. The shared mailbox will be provisioned as usual.

You need to check a log why replication is not working.
But since this is shared mailbox you can ignore this error since there is no login and password to synchronize.

You can ignore this warning as it is a shared mailbox, since there will be no login credentials for the shared mailbox.
