I have full DomainAdmin rights, but I'm unable to move or create a mailbox on my new Exchange 2010 server.  I've tried running the Full Access command with the Shell, but I still don't have the right permissions.

i believe there is a diff between a domain admin and an exchange admin.  a couple of years ago, MS decided to flip a few security settings..   try making a user that is NOT a domain admin but IS an exchange enterprise server admin (either that or enterprise admin)  i forget which specifically is it..

Sorry I'm a member of the following groups:

Domain Admins
Domain Users
Enterprise Admins
Exchange Organization Administrators
Organization Management
Recipient Management
Schema Admins
Server Management

Am I missing a group or should I remove a group?

Create a test user on the domain, set the password to a complex string and give the user just exchange org and public folder org admin rights, use said user while logged into the server and the on server exchange maagement console to try and create a mailbox.

Im betting you have a fundamental issue and it's not rights.

Run the Best practices analyzer from the toolbox as well if the second user account does not work.

I'd also add exchange reciepient admin to your rights group

ugh, i hate not being around a faster system....
anyhoo.. if memory serves, theres a conflict now if you are a member of DOMAIN ADMINS and EXCHADMIN

i dont see that u listed EXCHADMIN, so im going to assume thats the group you need to be in to make the changes.

i think the procedure these days is to have a domain admins group and exchadmins and they are inherently separated.  there is some reg hack i think that lets you be a member of both.

so i would create a NEW user, called MAILADMIN, do NOT add them to Domain Admins, but DO add them to EXCHADMIN, see if that new user can do the mail stuff for you.

gharveyz28 can you show me the output of when you try and move the mailbox from the wizard ?

I have seen to many times in PS where people typo.

Is it a permissions denied message or a failure to find the box ?

Output please.

Here is the error from the Local Move Request Wizard on the Exchange 2010 Server. (trying to move mailbox from 2007 to 2010).

Solved it.

I removed myself from every Exchange Group except:

Exchange Organization Administrators
Organization Administrators
Server Management

I guess I was a member of a group with more restrictive permissions.
