Exchange Compliance Management Error Message.

I am using Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 or v15.  I noticed when I was exploring the Exchange admin center, subsection compliance management that an error pops stating the following..."the discovery mailbox a hidden default mailbox that is required to search mailboxes can't be found...".

Now I know that there is lots of information on this, but I have a unique situation, I think.  I checked AD for SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29-89c3-4034-b678-e6c29d823ed9} and DiscoverySearchMailbox{D919BA05-46A6-415f-80AD-7E09334BB852} and both appear there, IE they have not been deleted.  They are also in a disabled state, which is apparently normal.  

So why am I getting this error?  I think the previous admin once restored the entire Exchange server for some reason, could it be related.  Will this effect my ability to control and or interact with the compliance management portion of Exchange?

Thanks for the information.

Are you in a co-existence environment with exchange 2010. if you are, you will need to migrate all arbitration mailboxes to exchange 2013.

Hi timgreen7077,

Currently I am almost certain that it is not operating concurrently with any other Exchange boxes, just the one.

I am a bit, ahh, fresh when it comes to Exchange.  Where am I running this?  On the Exchange server via Powershell?
