The mailbox database 'Mailbox Database


  • Hi,

    I have a bit of a problem,

    1. Migrated from Exchange 2003 to 2010
    2. Tried to Move the Public Folders, but they faild (not too botherd, turned out one had used them for months.)
    3. Have two databases that present the follow error if I try and delete them:

    "The mailbox database 'Mailbox Database 0495365067' cannot be deleted. Mailbox Database 0495365067 Failed Error: The database object 'Mailbox Database 0495365067' in Active Directory has been corrupted and is in an inconsistent state. Unable to find any server hosting a copy of this database."

    How do I delete theses databases please?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi paul,

    you can delete it from ADSI Edit console.

    Delete Daatabase from ADSIEdit.

    Adsiedit.msc>>>Configuration>>> Services>>>Organisation>>>AdministrativeGroup>>>Exchange AdministrativeGroup>>>Databases>>>Right click on Dismounted Database Name and Click on Delete.
