Sync generates event 3196 and 3420
I have a EV 9.0 environment where we are implementing a leavers policy.
Part of this process is to hide the leaving user from the GAL and to add the user to a different provisioning group in order to empty the mailbox on all archivable items. This works well with the required registry keys added in order to archive hidden mailboxes. The users mailbox will remain in this state for a longer period of time before we disable the mailbox for further archiving and delete it from Exchange.
So far so good, however at the two daily syncronizations the eventlog is populated with event 3196 and 3420 for all users that are hidden from the GAL. This doesn´t give any real consequence since the affected users actually have left the company so the need to write new info to the hidden message is naturally very low.
The problem is rather that the eventlog is populated with so many errors and warnings that REAL problems might be undetected.
Can anyone enlighten me as to WHY we are receiving the events and HOW we can avoid them, while keeping the users mailboxes hidden from the GAL?
Thanks in advance and have a nice day.
