Automatic archiving of Hidden & AD-Disabled mailboxes
Hello. As a part of our outtake process, we disable leavers' AD accounts, hide their address from the GAL and move their mailbox to a special OU.
For years, I have been using the ProcessHiddenMailboxes = 1 and ExcludeDisabledADAccounts = 0 values in the EV server's registry.
AND I have a SQL Update query that runs every hour and changes the MbxExchangeState field to 0.
(And I even have recently added one more Update query to change ADMbxFlags to 0)
The problem is that these hidden/disabled users are NEVER archived automatically when the archiving task runs on schedule.
I always have to manually right-click on the archiving task and do Run Now and select the leavers to be archived.
After doing this for about 7 years it is kind of getting old. Is there ANY way to make this work automatically?
