exchange 2013 migration issue with users email

I was trying to use the EAC to migrate a user from 2007 to 2013, but the first time I ran it, it failed. So I created the mig job again and now it keeps saying completed, but it does not migrate it. I tried increasing the bad limit count to 50, but same result.
Is there a command a can run or should run with the bad limit count set to maybe 100 to try to get the mailbox migrated over?

Hi,

Here is the command to increase the bad limit for all users and for a specific user

Exchange 2010
Get-MoveRequest -Identity "Manikandan" |  Set-MoveRequest -BadItemLimit 20 | Resume-MoveRequest

New-MoveRequest -Identity ‘Administrator’ -BadItemLimit 100 -AcceptLargeDataLoss

Exchange 2013
Set-MoveRequest -Identity Ayla@humongousinsurance.com -BadItemLimit 100 -AcceptLargeDataLoss

Thanks

did you specify Target archive database???
to move the mailbox test1 through exchange 2013 management shell use:

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'test1@domain.com' -TargetDatabase "DBname"
to check if it is completed use:

Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity test1@domain.com

What is the full command that I need to use along with the bad limit count along with the data base that it needs to be moved to.
New-MoveRequest -Identity 'test1@domain.com' -TargetDatabase "DBname" -badItemLimit 100
if you have the same db name on more than one exchange server, you need to specify the server name and SG like:

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'test1@domain.com' -TargetDatabase "exchserv1\first storage group\DBname" -badItemLimit 100

no the dbs name on the 2013 server is not the same as the db name on the 2007 server. So do I run the last command you just mentioned then?
try this first

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'test1@domain.com' -TargetDatabase "DBname" -badItemLimit 100

Ok then I should see this when it is running in the EAC correct or do I have to run another command to see the status of the job?
to see the status of the job run:

Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity test1@domain.com

oK I will give it a try and let you know...

if for some reason the job will fail with the 100 bad limit, would next step be to call support?
let we see the result first

ok cool..
If you have a mailbox with lots of corrupted items and you want to move it to a new mailbox database you can use the command below :-

New-MoveRequest -Identity AliasOfUser -TargetDatabase DatabaseName -BadItemLimit unlimited -AcceptLargeDataLoss

Active directory property homeMDB is not wirteable on receipient xxxxxxxxxxx

Standard fix for errors about permissions are to go in to the properties of the user in ADUC, on the security tab ensure that permission inheritance is enabled. If it is not, enable it and then wait about half and hour and try again.

Yes the same error happened with me and solved as mentioned by Mr. Simon
