Error code 0xc1054005 when moving a mailbox

Hi all,

Im in the process of upgrading clients to outlook 2003 and then moving thier mailbox from exchange 2000 to exchange 2003. The new exchange server is a member server in a 2000 domain. A have just tried to move one clients mailbox and received the following error in the report log (the move failed)error:

Error code: 0xc1054005

The MAPI call failed. MAPI or an unspecified service provider ID no: 80004005 - 0000 - 00000000

What does this mean? is there a corrupted message somewhere, and if so how can i track it down? Ive read on the internet that i need to use a program called PFDAVadmin. What is this/ what does it do?

thanks for the help

Check mailbox size limits set them to unlimited
Check switch as well. Maybe try a gigabit switch

Also look into this  

MS has a nifty tool called PFDavAdmin that can show you bad DACLs on a mailbox,

hey thats great!

the little tool sorted it, some kind of dacl permission inbalance. Told it to fix them and it went through like a dream.

Thanks again

Your welcome thanks for the points!!
I ran the pfdavadmin to check a single mailbox and and also ran "Check DACL State" and this is the error that I come up with.  "The underlying connecting was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server"  We use ssl for our owa which I have typed in, so I'm not sure what the problem is.  Any thoughts??

Thanks for your help!!

im no expert on this, but it sounds like it cant get access to your exchange server? Can you run the tool directly on the box? its been a whilke since i looked at this sorry. One other thought, if its failing on the dacl state perhaps it cant contact your gc?
