Deleting the NTDS No Match Accounta

By TPCCPT ·
Hey there,

Quick question for someone...We ran the ADC connector and I migrated an Exchange 2000 Server onto an existing 5.5 Site (There is still a 5.5 Server on this site.) i'm looking at taking off the 5.5 server but when the ADC ran it created 5 disabled accounts using the NTDS No Match option.

I moved all the mailboxes over that I wanted to keep but the disabled mailboxes (releated to the NTDS No Match accounts) are still sitting on the 5.5 Server.

My question is...what should I do with these accounts? Should I: Delete the mailboxes from the 5.5 Server and also delete the disabled accounts in AD?

Or is there a better method of doing this...I don't need the accounts and I don't want to enable them. Just wondering the repercussions of removing these accounts if there are any.

Thanks in advance,

TC

I've seen all these and I know that you can go through AD to fix them. I don't want them fixed I want thme gone. I'm wondering if it's ok to delete them from the Exchange 5.5 mailbox and also delete the disabled user accounts from Active Directory.

The mailboxes I want are already migrated over and I'm not getting any error messages. The ADC should not be an issue either once Exchange 5.5 is removed.

Thanks though...but not what I'm looking for. I want to know if it's possible to delete the Disabled accounts and their mailboxes from the servers with no apparent issues. And if issues what are they.

If you don't want the accounts then delete them. There will be no repercussions.

Depending on the setup you chose for the ADC CA, if you delete them on one side, then run the CA, it may delete them on the otherside for you.

To be on the safe side, I would first delete the mailboxes on your Exchange 5.5 server and wait for the ADC to do its replication thing. Then you should be able to delete the accounts in Active Directory. Hope this helps!
