Hello Experts Exchange,

Old MailboxDatabase Entery still showing in the Veritas Enterprise Vault Task - Targets. How to remove the old MailboxDatabase Entry in EV Task Database entry in EV side.
I have verified in SQL EV Database, there is no mailboxes associated with old mailboxdatabases.

I have removed the Task in Enterprise Vault and recreated, but showing the old mailboxdatabase entry.
I tried to check in adsiedit in the configuration container - services - administratrative groups - Databases, but it's not showing in the adsiedit in old mailboxdatabase. something went wrong.

Please suggest.

Thanks-Sami

Hi,

I have already removed the MailboxDatabase from the server along with the location of MailboxDatabase & Transaction logs location.
Here what happened in EV-SQL and EV-Archiving task were showing the Old MailboxDatabases which removed from the Exchange server.

I have executed the SQL script to get removed from the EnterpriseVaultDirectory Databases. Now it has been removed from the Task target in Enterprise Vault Admin console.

Here is the parameters to get removed Old MailboxDatabase from the EV-Tasks Target Databases after executed the Provisioning task.

select * from ExchangeMailboxStore where Name Like 'MBX%'
--Note:Old MailboxDatabase Entery it will display.
--Note it down the Identity of MailboxDatabase.

select * from ExchangeMailboxStore where MbxStoreIdentity=1 or 2 based on the searching criteria.

Select * from ExchangeMailboxEntry where MbxStoreIdentity=1

--Check where any other Mailboxes associated with this Old MailboxDatabases.

delete from ExchangeMailboxStore where MbxStoreIdentity=1

--After executing the Delete parameters in the EV SQL server side check for the 1. SQL command, where still its appearing or not.

select * from ExchangeMailboxStore where Name Like 'MBX%'

That did the trick to get remove from the Task of the associated Targets of the EV-Archival server in the admin console.
