TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Exchange 2010 SP1 curiosity(ies)

“(ies)” because there are mulitples.

I went to remove the default mailbox database from a new e2010 sp1 install today. In the midst of the fun, I noticed that I still could not remove the database from the EMC.  I had previously moved the arbitration mailboxes and the discover assistant mailbox.

But still, I got this error:

But, turning to the EMS proved very fruitful.

Wazzup wid dat?  How can the GUI not allow the removal, but powershell yank it right out.  The GUI is just a shell of the CLI.  So what gives?

Also, note that GUI talks about set-mailboxplan and get-mailboxplan.  Neither of those commands exist on the copy of Exchange 2010 SP1 that is running on this server.  Nice, eh?
