How to move system attendant mailbox RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am running Exchange 2007 SP3 and I have 28 Databases I need to delete the default database which hold the mailbox for the System Attendant service. If I delete the database will it recreate the mailsob on another database or do I have to rehome it through adsideit before I delete the database?

    Go through the following link which explains more about the System Attendant mailbox


    If you want to move the System Attendant mailbox to another database, you can do it from ADSIEDIT. Follow the below steps

    1) open ADSIEDIT.msc

    2) connect to the configuration container

    3) Expand CN=Configuration,CN=Services,CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN= "OU Name", CN=Administrative Groups,CN= Exchange Administrative Group, CN=Servers, CN="Server name", CN=Microsoft System Attendant.

    4) Right click CN=Microsoft System Attendant and select properties

    5) select the attribute "Home MDB". you will find the DN of the database which is currently holding the System Attendant mailbox. you can change this to the DN of the database to which you need to move the System Attendant mailbox.

    Let me know if this helps
