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" ?>

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.
