Cannot Move Exchange 2007 Mailboxes - HELP!!!!
Posted on 2010-01-09
All mailbox moves fail on our production Exchange Server. It has two mail databases. Trying to move users between these databases.
Works fine on test Exchange Server., which also has 2 databases. Can move between databases with no problem, but cannot move a mailbox from test server to the production server.
Both servers are Exchange 2007 with all updates applied, running in Windows 2008 Server.
Here is the error that is being reported:
<Result IsWarning="False" ErrorCode="-1056749262">Error occurred in the step: Opening source mailbox. Failed to open mailbox with error: The operation failed.</Result>
Have been researching this problem for two weeks with no resolutions found. The mailboxes were able to move fine up to about two weeks ago, then they just quit. The only thing that was done, that I can think of, about the time the problem started was on a Windows 2003 Server, running Exchange 2003 System Manager, I deleted an old Exchange 2003 server, which no longer exists.
I have added FULL ACCESS permissions to every user mailbox for Enterprise Admins, Domain Admins, Exchange Servers, etc. but nothing works.
It just stopped working. Had moved twenty or so mailboxes from one DB to another. Then tried again, I think after I deleted the old Exchange Server and now it will not work. I think that is the scenario.....
Need Help!! Thanks.
