This issue has been solved. See solution.


I need to delete about 2,000 archive mailboxes and seleting them manually is a big task for me.

Can we do it via SQL if yes them can anyone share the script.

you can also talk to AndrewB on the forums about a tool that Trace3 have
The thing is, if you follow that SQL script, you could potentially bring down the environment
have seen many customers where storage just cannot respond to the number of item deletes and index deletes that are going on , along with SQL getting pretty hard too

Are you using Discovery Accelerator in EV Environment ?

If YES, then need to remove Legal Hold from DA Cases and also need to delete those cases who put Legal Hold on User Archive for those you are trying to delete it.

When we delete the DA Case it will automatcally remove the Hold from User Archive and then you will be able to delete those User Archives from Enterprise Vault.

If No then you can manually delete the User Archive from Enterprise Vault as mentioned by Rob.
