sbs2008 mailbox migration fails on one mailbox

I successfull migrates 73 out of 74 mailboxes  during my sbs2003 to sbsb2008 migration.but of course the one mailbox we need, the directors, didnt come over. Probably becuase it is over 4.5 GB.  I have turned off the mailbox limits on the SB2008 server.  However I accidenlty maked the mailbox migration on the SBS Migration wizard as complete.  If I go into Exchang Management her mailbox is still listed as a legacy mailbox. If I choose to move it from the old server to the new server it tells me it cant because it already exists.  How do I restart the migration for just the remaining mailbox?

Sounds to me like the account you are using does not have permissions to move the mailbox.

You will need to correct this first before you can move the mailbox.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

That was the problem with doing the exmerge.  I got that resolved and got the emails exported but here is the new problem.  On the SBS2008 server is shows up as a legacy mailbox, on the SBS2003 the mailbox is still there. On the local outlook it will only connect to the sbs2003 server, even if I manually enter the sbs2008 server.  How do I get it to connect to the sbs2008? Do I need to manually delete the 2003 and upgrade the 2008 to a normal mailbox, then import the pst I created in exmerge?

I should have been more clear, the Exchange Management error I get is on the SBS2008 server when I try to manually move the mailbox from sbs2003 to sbs2008. I am logged in as the same account that moved all of the other mailboxes during the migration so user right should not be an issue.

The solution was partailly correct, that was why I could not do the exmerge.  As far as moving the mailbox I had to delete the legacy mailbox and recreate it and then move it again.
