I have recently installed Exchange 2003 on a my domain with a Exchange 5.5. Every thing was wll right during the migration process and now I am in the phase of moving mailboxes from Exchange 5.5 to my new Exchange 2003. When I run Move Mailbox Wizard in ESM on any of mailboxes in Exchange 5.5, the operation fails and I get the following error log:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="unicode" ?>

I have full administrator permissions on all servers and domain controllers.

Try using the ORIGINAL administrator account, not just the equivilent permissions. This should allow you to perform the move.

 Also make sure both servers are fully patched.

I tried with the original Administrator account of domain, which is also a member of local Administrators group in Exchange 2003 computer, but it failed as well. Also both servers are fully patched. The first day I installed Exchange 2003, I could move a mailbox just for test. But not, after weekend, I cannot move any mailboxes to the new server.

I found in a KB (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;273255) that we can not have both Exchange 5.5 and GC in the same machine when we have Exchange 2003/2000, which is what we have here. So, I removed GC from my Exchange 5.5 server and am waiting for a proper time to restart it. I'll let you know the results.

very good find, let me know how it works. I did not read that you had the GC On the same server, I must have missed that.

Yes. That worked. When I removed GC role from Exchange 5.5 server, I could move mailboxes to the new Exchange 2003 machine. Thank you.
