Exmerge Error

We have two Exchange 2003 servers and would like to move our mail store from one to the other.  Both exist in the same organization.  When we run ExMerge, it fails with the following appearing in the ExMerge log:

Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Merge Program, v6.5.7529.0
Start Logging:March 28, 2006   09:55:56

[09:56:09] An error was encountered while accessing server 'S-EXCH1'. For more information please refer to the ExMerge log file

If anyone can help with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Accepted Solution

    If the two servers are in the same org why aren't you just using the move mailbox wizard?

    Assisted Solution

    Permissions, cytogenadmin , permissions.

    You are trying to run ExMerge as Domain Admin and naturally you do not have the necessary permissions.
    Domain Admins have deny by default on the Exchange stores.
