Exchange 2013, moving mailboxes from 2010 to 2013

I have an exchange 2013 box with CU1 on it.  We also have an exchange 2010 box running in the same exchange organization. it's time to move the mailboxes from the 2010 box to the 2013 box and we are running into a problem.  The error in the log is:

The job is currently stalled due to 'Content Indexing' lagging behind on resource

1. Is "resource" my 2010 server or my 2013 server?

After some googling, I found the links about adding the AD group ContentSubmitter, granting permissions and restarting the services.  This IS NOT resolving the issue.  

Odd thing is I have moved about 15 mailboxes so far.  It's just one that's giving my trouble.  Or at least I think that.  I have others to do so I guess I could go do one of them and see if it's mailbox specific or not, but I suspect not.

Ideas on something OTHER than the fix concerning the creation of the ContentSubmitter group.

The fix for this had nothing to do with the contentsubmitter group.  All I had to do was rename the folder where the index is stored, restart the host search service and Exchange rebuilt the index for me and the database was restored to a health state.
