Creating Archives -- Accounts no longer exist

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am moving tens of thousands of archives from assorted legacy EV implementations into a new, central one. Things are going well but there is one problem that I would apprecite some help with. Thousands of the legacy vaults are associated with accounts and mailboxes that have long since been deleted. How do I create new vaults in the central EV implementation to correspond to these "orhpan" vaults in the legacy implementations?

One great idea is, "don't!" but that has not been accepted by the customer. The idea is to put all the messages from orphan vaults into a single new vault. That would be easy.

Ideally, I want an approach that can be scripted or otherwise programmed. The notion of using the GUI to create the new vaults is daunting, and the odds of getting all the names right is not very high.

Any suggestions?

Well how are you moving the archives to begin with?
Move Archive? PST Export/Import? Archive Shuttle? TransVault etc?

GEM can do it presently but the process to manually create archives on a per Archive basis is still somewhat challenging.

I know that I submitted an enhancment to be able to perform this in a batch operation. If you would like to reach out to me I can see what version of GEM you are on and if you have an active contract with Globanet I can see what we can do to best accomidate your needs. 

I hope this helps.
