I'm trying to do a cutover migration from Exchange 2007 to Office365 and have received the above error message for 8 users, out of the total 74. No further details have been provided by Microsoft Office 365 and using PowerShell has not generated more information; see below.

Hi

Check out this community port on Office 365 http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/156/t/275790.aspx

Seems to indicate that a field on some mailboxes was referencing another object that no longer exists.

Thanks

Love those detailed troubleshooting messages :)

Some people have reported the same on the community forums, in one case it turned out to be the manager attribute, in other the delegate (in both cases the corresponding users no longer existed). Look at all the other relevant attributes as well, see if you can spot any invalid entries for proxyaddresses, displayname, targetaddress, legacyexchangeDN etc. It's just a guessing game...

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

I've not yet found the specific invalid entry yet. The ones that were proposed in your entry don't seem to help.

I pursue a solution still...!
