Unable to delete databases completely

Copper Contributor



I'm having a problem deleting completely old databases on my 3 Exchange 2016 servers.


by launching: Get-MailboxDatabaseRedundancy -DatabaseAvailabilityGroup DAG01
I get some databases like

DAG01_MBX01 False False False 13.09.19 09:54:35

This database has already been deleted, but somehow there is a trace in the servers which remains.


How can I clean up these non-existing databases on my servers ?


Best regards, Guy

Use the below command to remove the database from the server completely


Remove-MailboxDatabaseCopy -Identity DB1\MBX1 -Confirm:$False

Why don't you delete from ADSI Edit completely? But clear it carefully.
