System Mailbox to migrate to Exchange 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have completed the migration of all my users from my Exchange 2010 SP3 environment to Exchange 2013 CU10. I have 4 system mailboxes and 2 discovery mailboxes left on Exchange 2010.

    When I run get-mailboxdatabase | Get-Mailbox -Arbitration |ft name,database,servername. To list the arbitration mailboxes i get 2 systemMailboxes and 1 Migration mailbox on one of the Exchange 2013 servers. If I run the command from the Exchange 2010 server I get 1 system mailbox and 1 federatedemail mailbox hosted in a 2010 mailbox.

    My question is should I delete all the system mailboxes to be safe still in the Exchange 2010 environment? Their combined size is not even 2MB. If I migrate them to the Exchange 2013 servers will I have issues removing the Exchange 2010 servers?

    Thanks,

    You should move those to Exchange 2013.
