Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 Migration Issue: ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient

I've googled "Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient" and have tried all the fixes found. Most people have been able to solve the issue by inheriting permissions or adding the Exchange Trusted Subsystem permission. The users I'm having a problem with have all of these permissions enabled and inherited, but the mailboxes still don't go anywhere. The interesting thing is that the migration batch completes without error or failure now, but it says "0" mailboxes were migrated or synced. Also, when checking on the status in ECP it doesn't show the mailbox as syncing. Then it just completes without error.

Not sure what else I can do here, so looking for other answers.

I also made sure I wasn't trying to migrate a mailbox that was already in the database that I want to migrate to. The mailboxes are still in the Exchange 2007 database.

After searching around forever to find an answer to this I decided to try doing these final moves via Exchange Powershell. Got remaining mailboxes with this cmd: Get-Mailbox -Server <Exchange 2007 Server Name> Then issued this command to migrate the remaining mailboxes that I was having trouble with using ECP: Get-Mailbox -Server <Exchange 2007 Server Name> | New-MoveRequest -BatchName "Remaining Mailboxes". Checked move status with this command: Get-MoveRequest -BatchName "Remaining Mailboxes" | Get-MoveRequestStatistics. Mailboxes are now really moving. Problem solved!
