    Default com.zimbra.common.soap.SoapFaultException: no such account


    while performing a zmblobchk -v start i get this error on one account:

    com.zimbra.common.soap.SoapFaultException: no such account: bedeeea4-28d5-47dd-8324-224372904fec
    	at com.zimbra.common.soap.Soap12Protocol.soapFault(
    	at com.zimbra.common.soap.SoapTransport.extractBodyElement(

    	at com.zimbra.cs.account.soap.SoapProvisioning.invokeRequest(
    	at com.zimbra.cs.account.soap.SoapProvisioning.invoke(

    This installation is new but several accounts/domains have been imported from an old installation, so I suspect this is dirty information from an old account.

    how can I totally remove that account?

    I was thinking about modifying ldap directly, but I would like to be sure before proceding.

    Release 7.2.1_GA_2790.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 FOSS edition.

    ... it looks like there's stale data in your MySQL Database. You can check this by looking into the dabase directly. As the zimbra user run a MySQL shell "mysql"

    mysql> use zimbra;
    Reading table information for completion of table and column names
    You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A
    Database changed
    mysql> select * from mailbox where account_id="bedeeea4-28d5-47dd-8324-224372904fec"\G
    *************************** 1. row ***************************
                    id: 869
              group_id: 69
            account_id: bedeeea4-28d5-47dd-8324-224372904fec
       index_volume_id: 2
    item_id_checkpoint: 256
         contact_count: 0
       size_checkpoint: 0
     change_checkpoint: 1
         tracking_sync: 0
         tracking_imap: 0
        last_backup_at: NULL
      last_soap_access: 0
          new_messages: 0
    idx_deferred_count: 0
       highest_indexed: 0
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)
    should give you the details. You may then delete the stale data from the database:

    delete from mailbox where account_id ="bedeeea4-28d5-47dd-8324-224372904fec";
    will most likely result in an error message like "ERROR 1451 (23000): Cannot delete or update a parent row: a foreign key constraint fails". You have to check table by table if there's other stale data related to the non-existing account and delete that too.

    Please be careful when deleting data! No warranty for any damage.
