We have around 65 mailboxes and I am having a problem with 14 mailboxes.  Have checked Full Access Permissions and DNS.  Same AD domain, should be pretty straightforward.  Here is the error message:

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00

John Doe

Active Directory operation failed on C02.domain This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150BB9, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

The user has insufficient access rights.

Reading this, it sounds like you need to grant privileges to the destination Exchange Mailbox..  Since it is based on AD and the user already exists in the domain, you need to do that first..  Then copy the data..

This sounds like the  AD inheritable permissions issue that was seen a lot in EXCHANGE 2007.

Go to AD and find the mailbox which is having issue
Properties > Security > Advanced.  Check the box and ensure that "allow inheritable
permissions from parent" is set.  

Let AD replicate.  Try to perform a move function again.

I hope this will resolve your issue.
