Error - 'You cannot have both ArchiveDatabase and ArchiveDomain set.' - when performing a dial tone recovery for mailboxes on-premises that have online archives


The issue below can be noticed when performing a dial tone recovery of a database. (Using DAG as per Microsoft recommendations would narrow such scenarios in your environments.) It can occur on Exchange 2010, 2013 and 2016 in a hybrid configuration with Exchange Online regardless the CU version or type of database used.

Mailboxes which are located on-premises and have online archive mailboxes generate an error when you try to change their DB by using  Set-Mailbox cmdlet.

Workarounds:

 

  • Removing the online archive, moving the mailbox and re-attaching the online archive (which basically removes the cause of the error)

Example:

Get-Mailbox - Database 'Mailbox Database 1447468907' | Set-Mailbox -Database DB -ArchiveDomain $Null

Set-Mailbox -Database DB -ArchiveDomain lilmiracleink.onmicrosoft.com

 

  • Performing a change of the HomeMDB of the user through ADSI Edit the change is being done. (Please note that this method is not a supported scenario and is to be used on your own responsibility.)

 

Example:

 

From: CN=Mailbox Database 1447468907,CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=LittleMiracle,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=littlemiracle,DC=local

 

To: CN=DB,CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=LittleMiracle,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=littlemiracle,DC=local

  1. Thanks for sharing. That's quite a tricky workaround.
