Hooper05 is the domain controller
HDMailserver is the new exchange 03 server
mail_server is the 5.5 exchange server i'm attempting to move from

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

are you getting the error mentioned in the KB?
do you have any errors in the application log on the server?
have you enabled the diagnostic logging to MAX for move mailbox and then checked the application logs?

Install support tools on your server , go to run and type adsiedit.msc , in the opened window . u can find the attribute there .

Exchange 5.5 is running on NT4, how do I check for the attribute on NT?  thanks

since exchange 2003 is installed the exchange 5.5 server object must be present in adsiedit.msc under the servers container.
check it from there

to check on the exchange 5.5 server check via the raw mode. raw mode can be accessed by the steps that we had discussed in your last question about connection agreements.

open the exchange 5.5 administrator program in raw mode
highlight the exchagne 5.5 server name
click on the file menu and then click raw properties
check the attribute there

in adsiedit.msc
expand configuration container
expand services
expand microsoft exchange
expand you exchange ORG
expand administrative groups
expand your administrtive group
expand servers
over here you would see your exchange 5.5 server
open its properties and check the value of the attribute there

5.5 - There's no reference to msecxhresponsibleMTAserver in object attribute - raw properties of mail_server
2003 - referenced - value 'not set'

yes, i was looking for this value

set the following value for the 'msExchResponsibleMTAServer' attribute for the exchange 5.5 server via adsieidt.msc and then force AD replication and wait for few minutes. after that go back to the same place and check the properties of the exchange 5.5 server and check whether the value is present or not. if yes then try to move the mailbox

CN=Microsoft MTA,CN=MAIL_SERVER,CN=Servers,CN=hooperdolan,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=hooper dolan,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=hooperdolan,DC=ie
