Error Deleting A Shared Mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I attempt to delete a shared mailbox from the Exchange Admin Center, I get the following error message:

    The following error occurred during validation in agent 'Windows LiveId Agent': 'Unable to perform the save operation. 'ELOcouncil' is not within a valid server write scope.'

    We are on a hybrid On Premise/Cloud setup.  Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I suggest to open a support case in the admin center so solve this issue.

  • In case someone else runs across this post from Google as I did, you have to delete the account from the on premise Exchange/Active Directory and Sync the changes with DirSync(or the new tool, can't remember the name) to Office 365/Azure AD.

  • So what if you don't delete the account from Active Directory, but simply move it out of the Organizational Unit that the sync is tied to.  Will it actually delete the e-mail account?
