When trying to move a mailbox from one Exchange 2010 server to another, I'm getting the following error. This isn't 100% across the board; that is, if I try to migrate 10 mailboxes, I might get the error five times. If a new local move request fails with the error below and I try again it might work, it might not. Eventually it will work.

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
'domain.local/User/Staff/John Doe' | New-MoveRequest -TargetDatabase 'Mailbox Database 1867994801'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:04

There is no firewall enabled on either server, and they're on the same subnet with no ACLs blocking communications.

I've made sure both hosts are pingable by NetBIOS name. I did this by adding entries to the HOSTS file and also by adding the domain name to the DNS suffix list on the TCP/IP properties of each server. No help.

I've disabled IPv6 and tried and that didn't help either. However, after disablign IPv6 I wasn't able to reboot - I'll be able to test that later this afternoon.

I've also noticed this in Event Log, but not sure if it was at the same time as a failed new local move request or not:

Event ID: 10009
Source: DistributedCOM
DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer MAIL2.domain.local using any of the configured protocols.

Also seeing this on the source email server:
Event ID: 2604
Source: MXExchange ADAccess
Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1192). When updating security for a remote procedure call (RPC) access for the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service, Exchange could not retrieve the security descriptor for Exchange server object MAIL2 - Error code=8007077f.
 The Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service will continue starting with limited permissions.

AND

Event ID: 2501
Source: MSExchange ADAccess
Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1192). The site monitor API was unable to verify the site name for this Exchange computer - Call=DsctxGetContext Error code=8007077f. Make sure that Exchange server is correctly registered on the DNS server.

Both seem to point to DNS, but DNS looks clean. I made sure they're both registered with the proper IPs and PTRs.

I resolved this by disabling IPv6 and rebooting. I was then 100% on creating New Local Move Requests.

I also removed one entry in DNS that pointed to the right server, but a second IP on that server, that didn't respond to pings.
