I currently running a mixed enviroment of exch2k3 and 5.5.  the problem now seems to be the Exchange Move Mailbox Wizard, it connects to the source mailbox successfully but takes forever to move the mailbox to the exch2k3 server and then hangs on 34 %.

Im not getting any errors just warnings which really dont relate to the move mailbox migration process..
My ADC and GC's are working fine with no problems..

Any guidance greatly appreciated

    Look's like a corrupt msg in one of your mailboxes is causing this problem

    Make a backup of your 5.5 exchange DBs and transaction logs. Take exchange offline, Do a repair on the databases then try again.

    Are you connected on a local LAN? Any switches/routers/etc between the first 5.5 server and the 2k3 server?

    why don't you use exmerge to move the mail box instead of move mailbox wizard

    Tried exmerge and errors

     Error parsing DN '(null)' (CADRoutines::GetExchange5xServerNameInfo

     Error 8007203a opening an LDAP connection. ('LDAP://CAN-CAL-EXCH1/rootDSE')  (CADRoutines::GetNamingContextData)

    Could this be a permissions problem since the send as and receive as are denied ?

    Accepted Solution

    The account with which you are doing exmerge must have SEND AS and RECEIVE AS permissions on the mail boxes and also full mail box access.
