Exchange 2010 - Error moving mailbox form 2003 Server

Posted on 2011-09-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I'm in the process of moving my Exchange mailboxes from a 2003 exchange server to a new 2010.  I've run into a problem with a single mailbox (so far). I've seen fixes stating to use PFDAVAdmin and reset the DACL items for the user, but this hasn't seemed to work (I ran the DACL fix on the username, selecting to do all subfolders)

Also attempted to move the mailbox to a different store/storage group on the old server, which finished no problem, but still was unable to transfer it to the new server.

Other than that the only other solution I've seen is to create a VM with 2010 RTM and move the mailbox there, and then from that to my production 2010.  I'd really ratehr not have to do that.

Running Exchange 2010 SP1 with rollup 4

Oh and since I've had issues with it to, I can confirm that inheritable permissions is selected on the users AD object in ADSI

Well I resolved this issue.  It looks like it was  a permissions issue.  For the KB, here's what I did:

1. Opened PFDAVAdmin  on the 2003 exchange server
2. Opened all mailboxes
3. Found/selected users in question
4. Opened tools->Export permissions
5. Selected folder and subfolders

Then i searched through the output for permission settings that looked off.  I found the 'Search To-Do" folder had two extra entries for 'reviewer'.  I opened the folder permissions for "Search To-Do" in PFDAVAdmin  for the user, and removed the two entries and saved.

Ran the mailbox migration to completion.

 It seems that if there are any funky permissions for the user, the migration will fail.
