Local Move Request – Completed with Warnings

May 24, 2013

I’ve been having this issue a number of times when moving Exchange 2010 mailboxes between databases.

The Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service completed request with warnings.
Warning:
Failed to clean up the source mailbox after the move.
Error details:
MapiExceptionUnexpectedMailboxState: Unable to delete mailbox. (hr=0×80004005,ec=2634)

It started in Exchange 2010 RU3, but hasn’t been fixed in any subsequent patch as I’m currently up-to-date on windows updates.

The following powershell cleans up the soft deleted mailbox:

The below script finds the identities of the soft deleted mailboxes in the IT database
Get-MailboxStatistics -Database DatabaseName | Where-Object {$_.DisconnectReason -eq "Softdeleted"} | ft Identity

Then run the below with the right database and the identity string outputted from the above command
Remove-StoreMailbox -Database DatabaseName -Identity IdentityIDFromAbove -MailboxState Softdeleted
