I have migrated my user mail boxes from, 2003 to 2010 using the exchange New local move request. All but 5 mail boxes have moved. I have got the same message on all 5 mail boxes;


Active Directory operation failed on sbsserver.Ccn.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A48, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

The user has insufficient access rights.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
'Ccn.local/MyBusiness/Users/SBSusers/MGT Trans' | New-MoveRequest -TargetDatabase 'Mailbox Database 0277615695' -BadItemLimit '0'

 How do I move these mail boxes?

    Propably the users have been member of a special group. This will cause the inheritance on the object is not enabled which results in that not all exchange groups are added to the security tab. To fix this issue perform the steps below:

    - open active directory users and computers
    - enable the advanced features options in the menu
    - get the properties of the user and select the security tab
    - press the advanced button
    - Mark the option include Inheritable permissions from this objects parent

    Then wait a few minutes and try the move again.

    If you have the PST file you can import them to Exchange 2010 (
    or like johan_v already mentioned it could be a permission issue:

    Ended up having to call Support, because I tried install SP 2 for exchange so I could import PST files and had problems. They helped clear up the issue. It was security issues as well
