Rehoming System Attendant (SA) mailbox on Exchange 2010

If the dabase is deleted where the System attendant (SA) i placed, Microsoft has a fine article for Re homing the SA mailbox, in Exchange 2007.
The article called "The System Attendant homeMDB attribute is missing" is here:

It's a refference from the Best practise analyzer which will tell if there's a server where the SA is missing a homemdb value.

But I havent found an article for Exchange2010, where the path to the databases are slightly different.

In Adsi Edit you should instead use this path:

  • Configuration []
  • CN=Configuration,DC=contoso,DC=com
  • CN=Services
  • CN=Microsoft Exchange
  • CN=
  • CN=Administrative Groups
  • CN=Exchange Administrative Group (ID)
  • CN=Databases

The new path is is obviously because the Storage groups are gone in Exchange 2010, and the databases are now global instead of dedicated to a server.
