    ZxAdmin unable to query server, is not a Mailbox Server

    We have a multi-server installation running CentOS 6 x86_64 on 17 Zimbra servers of which 7 are mailbox servers.
    We run Zimbra 8.0.8 OSE and ZeXtras 1.8.18.

    I removed mailboxd from two servers, following instructions at Removing A Mailstore - Zimbra :: Wiki.

    Now, when I login in the Zimbra Admin Web interface, I get an error like the following

    Complete text is below
    Unable to query 'zm-in-02.cloud.forthnet.prv', is not a MailBox Server
    Client: Administration,

    It comes up 4-5 times for each mailboxd that I have removed.
    It looks like ZxChat is trying to contact them for some reason?

    I tried flushing the zimlet cache, and all the servers have been completely restarted since the mailboxd removal (because of an upgrade).

    I had a talk with the devs, and they think that there might still be some references to the old mailboxd server in a galsync/ham/spam account, could you please check those account for any reference to the old servers with the following commands:
    zmprov ga -e [account]
    zmprov gds [account] (only for the galsync account)
    It's also possible that a galsync account referencing one of the decommissioned servers has been deleted but it's still mentioned in the "zimbraGalAccountId" property of a domain, so checking if the output of the following command returns a valid account for any domain might be a good idea.
    zmprov gd [domain] zimbraGalAccountId
    Have a nice day,

    Very interesting, and right to the point!

    Indeed there were two galsync accounts referencing the old mailboxd servers, which I deleted.
    Their zimbraId was also mentioned in the domain's zimbraGalAccountId list, which I also removed.

    The ZeXtras error is now gone from the Zimbra admin interface :-)
    Thank you very much guys!
