Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

 
R--RCommented:
Network connectivity should be stable and enough bandwidth is required.
Check all the services should be running.
How much is the database size.

The other option is to create a new database and add a copy.
The move the mailbox one by one to the new database, this will ship the logs in parts.

OR manual seeding can be done.

This has been fixed. It was not network issue, it was replication issue of DC in DR site and Production site.
