HI,
I'm having an issue trying to move legacy mailboxes from a 2003 exchange server over to a new 2010 exchange box.
I get an error when trying to request the move saying "Failed to communicate with mailbox database"
 I have attached text file that details the failed move request.
Any ideas?
The operating systems are Small Business server 2003, and SBS2011.

Thanks
