Couldn't connect to the source mailbox

Hello,

 

I'm trying to run the migration command for a public folder migration to Office365 and I cannot get this to work no matter what I do.  This is an exchange 2007 server that I'm trying to migrate and I'm receiving the below message.  I have mailbox databases so I don't need to create those.  As far as I know everything is done correctly.  Help??

 
Couldn't connect to the source mailbox.

Hello,

I've followed those technet instructions to a tee.  I've probably gone through them 100 times and I'm still getting this message.  Wondering if anyone else has had this issue.  I've found a few articles about needing a mailbox store on the public folder server and I've already got that.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,
T

So just in case anyone else runs into this, the problem was that it was set to use basic authentication per the technet article, but my exchange server was using NTLM.  Once I changed it to NTLM it started with no problem.  It took about 4 months to finish this migration, but it's finally done.
