Here is the issue,
I have upgraded my domain to 2003 without to many issues and everyhting is working fine. the next step was to install exhange 2003 and migrate the mailboxes over to the new machines. I have installed exchange 2003 on a 2003 DC and can create new mailboxes and move those mailboxes from the 2003 to exchange 5.5. however any of my existing mailboxes I cannot move and get the following error

<taskSummary errorCount="1" completedCount="0" warningCount="0" errorCode="0x00000000" />
- <items>
- <item adsPath="LDAP://mydomain.com/cn=Temp,cn=Users,dc=mydomain,dc=com" class="user">
  <progress code="0" milliseconds="94">Connecting to source server.</progress>
- <summary isWarning="false" errorCode="0xc0072030">
  There is no such object on the server.
- <details>

and it fails. Any ideas? Thanks

Ok I need some info first...

did you install the ADC? Did you let it replicate to the 5.5?
DId you install the 5.5 in the same site and org?

When you use the mailbox move wizard why are you moving new ones to the 5.5? Can you even see the 5.5 store in your new exchange system manager?

what are the event id #s.....app and system

dawne :)

Hi,

Make sure your Active directory connector setting is correct with the proper username and  permissions. Make sure you have setup the correct administrator that has full access on the account for both servers.

Another thing you can do is set the LDAP port on Exchange to be 390 instead of 389. The reason why is because your DC's Active directory will use port 389 consistantly for ADS traffic. So change it on Exchange first then reconfigure the ADC to use port 390 instead of 389. This is the way i have done it and it works.

Question? Any reason you're installing Exchange 2003 on top of Domain Controller?

One more thing...
Those setting take place on the Exchange 5.5 server not on the ES2003 server.

Hello all and thanks for the responses so far. Let me answer the questions you have raised so far and maybe this will help

first pc brat the adc is installed and I believe it has replicated to the 5.5 server. it is installed in the same site and org as the 5.5 server. the reason I attempted to see if the move from 2003 to 5.5 would work was just a test. it allowed me to move the mailbox from 2003 to 5.5 and then back so I know the connections are good. However for all of the mailboxes created under the 5.5 server (before creating the 2003) these mailboxes all have the same errors. The event ids I get are


in the application log I get three entries. the first is that it is attempting to move the mailbox id 1006
the next is a error event id 9164 Failed to open object '/o=company name /ou=SSA/cn=Recipients/cn=user' on server 'server-name'.
Error: There is no such object on the server.  And the third is 1008 the mailbox was unable to be moved.

I can't figure out why it doesn't think it exists. When I can open my active directory and it sees it.

Ihave run the active directory connector and it runs fine and verifies fine. I have also changed the port to 390 and that hasn't help either. thanks
