Move mailbox not an option in Exchange 2000

I have two W2K Exchange2K servers. One restored from backup with same name & address. Then added a second in order to move Exchange. Can see mailboxes and system folders replicate. But there is no option to move mailboxes to the new server. I tried to force it by selecting several then selecting move mailbox. The warning is "This user has an Exchange 5.5 mailbox set but the replication is not completed yet." Both servers are 2000. There is no 5.5 server. There are no related errors or warnings in the event logs. Thanks!

More info: Ran mailbox cleanup and most mailboxes are disconnected. I can move the few that are not. When I try to reconnect, I get "The operation cannot be performed because this mailbox was already reconnected to an existing user." When I click OK, "The object has not yet replicated to the destination server." ID c1031731.

You must be trying to move mailbox from old server to the new server right?

Open ADUC--select the user who have the mailbox on the old server--go to the properties--select Exchange task and see whether you have the option for move mailbox or not?

In exchange 2000 you can move only one mailbox at a time.

If you can install Exchange 2003 System Management tools , You can start  four threads at a time.

Exchange 2000 we won't be able to move mailbox using Exchange System Manager.

When you are not able to connect mailbox with user,seems that user is already connected with some mailbox.

Check user properties--Exchange general tab--Check which server his mailbox resided on.

Here is what I had to do. Thanks to that link I found above. In AD Users & Computers, View Advanced. Then remove Exchange attributes. Then I could reconnect the mailbox to the user. This, of course, killed all the custom addresses. I put them back and everything is cool.
