hello, I'm trying to move a mailbox from an exchange 2003 server to our new Exchange 2010 mailbox servers. when running the new-moverequest command, the command Fails.
is there some kind of logging on ex2010 that would tell me why the new-morerequest is failing?

thanks much!

hi, yes it looks like it is failing on this error:
Error code: -2146233088
This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items that were specified for this move request.
i set the baditemlimit to 50 and still get this message.
this is the first move im testing from 2003 to 2010 in co-existance. should i increase the baditemlimit value? 50 seems high already

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

no, you shouldnt have this many.  we moved 300 users from 2003 to 2010 and only had 3 acocunts which we had to up the threshold to 5.

Have you tried any other mailboxes yet?  If the other mailboxes move fine, I would esport this 1 mailbox to PST, delete that mailbox, then recreate on the 2010 box

You can always take the 2003 db offline and repair it with eseutil /p but make sure you have a good backup .

Ok i managed to move the mailbox using the -baditemliimit setting. i was expecting the outlook 2010 MAPI client to autodiscover the CAS array on its own. is this not how it is designed?
