We are migrating mailboxes from Exchang 2003 to Exchange 2010.  I have succesfully migrated about 50% of the company with not issues. One user, when I attempt to migrate, gives the following error:

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:02

<User Name>

Active Directory operation failed on <server>. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A48, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

The user has insufficient access rights.

    The additional log still says Data>System.DirectoryServices.Protocols.DirectoryOperationException: The user has insufficient access rights.
    Check out inheritance and ensure your account does indeed have rights on this mailbox.
