Error when moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to 2007....

We were originally able to move mailboxes from our Exchange 2003 to our new Exchange 2007 server,  however after a new SAN configuration, we are no longer able to move mailboxes, we receive the following error:


MapiExceptionNetworkError: Unable to make admin interface connection to server.

We have two sets of Teamed NICs one with the specified DNS and pointing to the internal network, however, the second is pointing to our SAN VLAN with no DNS configurations.  Would this cause this error? Or is there something that we can look at? Any words of advice for this issue?  That is the only change that I feel would cause us to not be able to move mailboxes.   Nothing the Event viewer logs.

does SAN VLAN have default gateway? can you remove default gateway from it's network card setting.. as it will be on same subnet..

The default gateway has already been removed.  However, I did notice that IPv6 is enabled as well on that NIC setting.

Thank anuroopsundd.....I believe the only part that of the article that goes hand in hand with what we are experiencing is the IPv6.  I have disabled that on the second team, but I am not able to reboot the server since it is production.  Crossing my fingers that it was the problem.

I have found the solution to my problem.  For my Account, even though I was a Domain Admin / Enterprise Admin.  My Primary Group was Domain User.  Setting my Primary Group to Domain Admins did the trick and I was able to move the Mailboxes.  Go figure!

Thank you!
