I am having an issue with one mailbox when I attempt to migrate it from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013. The error is that the object cannot be found. However the account and mailbox are active and in production every day. What can be causing this?

Thanks

Can you move the mailbox to another database on the Exchange 2007 server? Moving the mailbox around like that will often clear issues.

Md. Mojahid,

That didn't work.

Hi Sembee,

I tried two different databases, same issue. The affected mailbox is a users mailbox that is in a child domain and the powershell error I received said that the object could not be found on the parent domain controllers. However there is nothing wrong with the account. What do you think it could be?  All other mailboxes are migrating perfectly.

Single user issue you are probably looking at export and recreation. The account probably didn't mail enable properly or hasn't replicated to the parent domain. Could be some other history on the account which means there are problems with it which are best resolved with a new account/mailbox.
