Moving mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010

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.

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.

You can also consider for an automated option if still have facing error in moving mailbox from exchange 2007 to 2010. Please have a look at this link http://www.exchangemailboxmigration.com/ which is very proficient in terms of proceeding safe and error-free migration from old exchange server to upgraded one.
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
