Mailbox move failure - Exchange 2003 to 2010

I put in a new Exchange 2010 server in an existing Exchange 2003 domain. Created the routing groups and tested email flow and email is working to 2003 and 2010 servers.

I moved 2 accounts to the Exchange 2010 server and they send/receive email fine. I am attempting to move the remaining mailboxes but get the following message;

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:01:00

Error:
The call to 'net.tcp://servername.domainname.com/Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService servername.domainname.com (14.1.218.11 caps:07)' timed out. Error details: This request operation sent to net.tcp://servername.domainname.com/Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService did not receive a reply within the configured timeout (00:01:00).  The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.  This may be because the service is still processing the operation or because the service was unable to send a reply message.  Please consider increasing the operation timeout (by casting the channel/proxy to IContextChannel and setting the OperationTimeout property) and ensure that the service is able to connect to the client.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
'domainname.com/Cymphonix Users/Joe Smith' | New-MoveRequest -TargetDatabase 'Mailbox Database 0479572791'

What puzzles me is that 2 mailboxes moved without issue.

In the move wizard there was an option to allow number of errors, and the default is always 0. Did you try to increase the allowed error numbers to 10 for example.

in 2003 wizard this is in "Maximum number of corrupted items to skip"
in 2010 also it is "Skip corrupted message". See http://www.petri.co.il/baditemlimit-override-exchange-2010.htm

It would not even get that far. It would fail as soon as I pressed Submit. Issue has resolved itself after some reboots for other issues and time. No issues moving mailboxes for what ever reason.
