Deleted User not removed from GC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Technet Geeks,

    I was wondering if you could help me on an issue I am working on.

    I have a forest named

    "itfellas.com", and a child domain named "newbie.com". Exchange 2010 is installed itfellas.com, and have a mailbox enabled for a user in the newbie.com.

    The user account in newbie.com has been deleted and it was expected that the mailbox will be disconnected, but it hasn't. The mailbox is still up but we cannot disable, move, or edit it.

    When I open ADSI and connect to both LDAP and GC for name space dc=newbie,dc=com from newbie.com, the OU entry where the deleted user used to be is no longer there.

    However, when I open ADSI and connect to both LDAP and GC to dc=newbie,dc=com from itfellas.com domain, LDAP does not show the user, but GC does.

    I think is what exchange is looking at but when it tries to enumerate more inforamtion about the user to the equivalent domain (newbie.com) it cannot find it.


    The account has been deleted for several days now but mailbox is still up. Any ideas how to delete records from GC using ADSI?

    I tried connecting to GC via LDP but when I delete it, it shows this error, i was expecting it because you cannot edit via GC port, has anyone have any idea how to remove stale GC records?

    ldap_modify_s(ld, 'CN=testuser\0ACNF:d98faa83-ba25-426a-8548-7a247ac66e4b,OU=Service Accounts,OU=DY Users,DC=newbie,DC=com',[1] attrs);
    Error: Modify: Unwilling To Perform. <53>
    Server error: 00002035: LdapErr: DSID-0C090BB7, comment: Operation not allowed through GC port, data 0, v1db1
    Error 0x2035 The server is unwilling to process the request.


    For God, and Country.
