Enable Automatic Mailbox Distribution?

    Question

  • Hello All,

    I'm trying to find info on how to enable automatic mailbox distribution on Exchange 2013 servers. Can't seem to find any info. Is this feature already enabled? Are the mailboxes evenly distributed across the databases?

    Thanks

  • Thank you for the reply. To clarify, if a database isn't specified then Exchange will select one randomly? Therefore the feature is already enabled?

    Doesn't say if the mailboxes are evenly distributed, assuming this isn't supported in 2013? If so how do we evenly distribute mailboxes across several DBs?

    If you want evenly distributed and not random, then you need to script it with powershell when provisioning and use some sort of logic to distribute the mailboxes.
