migration between exchange 2007 and 2013 not working

Posted on 2015-01-07

Hi, I have an exchange 2007 that I need to migrate to Exchange 2013.
I have approx. 20 mailboxs, with which I transferred 12 the other day with no problem. I am now trying to move the other 8. The migration sits there, saying it is syncing. It has been left for 24 hours and still sits there, saying syncing, the individual user status shows 0 moved on all users.

I have stopped the sync and made another with only a few mailboxs and that does the same.

I get no errors or logs to give me any idea on what is happening.

Can you help ?

Restart Mailbox migration service on Exchange 2013. This will fix this issue.

I have tried the above solutons, as the mailbox started to move, it also failed.
I have tried the "get-moverequest -MoveStatus Inprogress | Get-moverequeststatistics" cmdlet to see what its doing.
I have all 5 users (moving over 5 at a time) with the status as "NetworkFailure"
Is there a way to resume this?
