MailboxExportRequest – Removal

Microsoft Exchange

MailboxExportRequest – Removal

Due to MailBoxExportRequest exists I couldn’t remove the empty mailbox database from Exchange Server.

During our upgrade from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016, we moved all the mailboxes from Exchange 2013 database to a new database created on Exchange 2016.

When I tried to remove the empty database I got “MailboxExport request” error as shown below:

I found that old mailbox requests exists pertaining to the database which I want to remove.

By running the below command I checked the details of the execution of the MailBoxExportRequest which was done one year back.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-MailboxExportRequest | fl

Then, removed the existing MailBoxExportRequest and removed the empty database successfully.
