Hi, we are using the quest migration tool to move some mailboxes from domino to Exchange 2010.

Most are working but some error with a cryptic error (which looks like an error that powershell returns):

09:47:04 DEBUG: PSCMDLET: Get-MailUser  -Identity CN=John Smith,OU=Finance,OU=London,DC=domain,DC=dom -DomainController DC1.domain.dom

09:47:04 DEBUG: Attempt 1 of 3 to get enabled mail user 'CN=John Smith,OU=Finance,OU=London,DC=domain,DC=dom' was not successful - will retry in 15 seconds. (PS Result: Specified method is not supported.

09:47:04  )

09:47:49 ERROR: [7559-1-221-000003EF] Error:

09:47:49  

09:47:49  AdFwd::_PSHEnableObject() - PowerShell Result: Specified method is not supported.

09:47:49  :

09:47:49  [000003EF] The requested operation cannot be performed in full-screen mode.

The account that the migration tool uses to run has full access to the user accounts being migrated. Most migrations work, but some fail as above and I can't see any reason why

Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks.

Looks like the user is disabled or hidden in AD from the account running Quest.

No experience of this especially just looking t the log suggests this.

1. can we normally access the same affected "john" from the powershell? Is that working fine?
Any other accounts @ the same OU works fine?

2. apart from the "DC1.domain.dom"...can we bind to another DC and check the behaviour?

Thanks for the suggestions.

The account running quest has full access to the user account object in AD.

I will see if I can force Quest to bind to a different DC and run it from there.

Will report back!

After further investigation it turns out that the DCs are located half way around the world and so we think the authentication is timing out. We are going to install a new DC locally and retest. Thanks for all comments.
