No 'Move' option in Exchange 2010 when trying to move OAB

Hi all, and thanks in advance for any assistance. I'm moving the last legacy Exchange 2003 server from 2010 and everything has gone off without a hitch so far. However, after I moved (and confirmed move of) all the public folders, I went to move the OAB. When right clicking the OAB (the generation server still reads 'old server'), there is no 'Move' option. Am I missing something? Need higher permissions in EMC, perhaps? Again, thanks!

Right click the OAB and choose "MOVE". You wont find "move" if you go in the properties

You are well in Organization Confguration -> Mailbox -> Offline address book ?

I believe I said I did that. But if I didn't, well...then I did that. :) When I right click the OAB, the only options I have are update, properties and help. I'm not seeing what could be wrong (other than the aforementioned permissions).

this is definitely a permission issue.

Can you create a new OAB ? It would be much easier to create a new OAB and set it as default rather than spending time looking for the missing permission .

OK I see from the screenshot you cannot even create a new OAB.

Is the user you are using part of the Organization Adminstrators group ?
