I am working in a site that has 35 Exchange servers, typically with 4 storage groups and 4 stores per server (total of 16 mailbox stores times 35 servers = 560 mailbox stores). Due to accout replication from mainframe to AD, about twice a week, a user account gets deleted and re-created, thus orphaning the mailbox. All that needs to be done is to reassociate the new account with the orphaned mailbox, BUT there is no way to see which server or store the mailbox was on before it was disconnected from the user account, so I presently have to manually browse through all 560 stores looking for a specific orphaned mailbox
So, I'm looking for a way to search through every server / store within an Exchange site for all orphaned mailboxes. If I could get a list of all orphans and their respective mailbox stores, that would be fine. It would be even better if I could search for a specific mailbox or display name, but beggers can't be choosers.
Does anybody know of any built-in or third-party tools that will perform the above search. I really don't care to continue browsing through all 560 stores looking for a single needle in a haystack.
