Exchange 2010 Failed to reset the target mailbox after the move.

Last Modified: 2015-09-03
I am migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.
When using Exchange 2010 EMC to do a local move request from the Exchange 2003 server in the child domain to the Exchange 2010 server in the parent domain, the move request status is Completed With Warning.

The log shows:
6/22/2015 3:23:57 PM [CityEX3] Move has completed and final clean up has started.
6/22/2015 3:23:58 PM [CityEX3] Source mailbox 'Primary (1c49f839-a808-40c0-866a-1d7058ee6fdb)' was successfully cleaned up after the move.
6/22/2015 3:23:58 PM [CityEX3] Failed to reset the target mailbox after the move. Attempt 1/6.
Error details: MapiExceptionWrongServer MapiExceptionWrongServer: Unable to open mailbox "/o=City of Fairbanks/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=jathayer" on server "CITYEX3.ci.fairbanks.ak.us". (hr=0x80004005, ec=1144)

The mailbox seems to work OK otherwise.
Please note that either the Exchange group listed shows the legacy 2003 group location while the server named is the new 2010 server.
They don't belong together.
