Exchange 2010 Remote Move Error

i keep running into the same error when trying to do a remote move on mailboxes.


The operation couldn't be performed because object '10bbe5cf-fc82-4ec0-ba81-bc47b2e4777d' couldn't be found on 'DS1.act-lab.local'.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
'10bbe5cf-fc82-4ec0-ba81-bc47b2e4777d' | New-MoveRequest -Remote -TargetDatabase 'Mailbox Database 0938213785' -RemoteHostName 'ds1.act-lab.local' -RemoteCredential 'System.Management.Automation.PSCredential' -TargetDeliveryDomain 'mail.act-lab.local'

Elapsed Time: 00:00:00

The 1 thing that changes on the error is my DNS servers. it toggles between the 3 servers every time i try to run the remote move request.

am i missing a step or doing something wrong?

Can you ping ds1.act-lab.local?  

Is the first part of your command a mailbox Guid?  If so, why not just run something like New-MoveRequest -Identity

Are you moving from or to a remote forest?  Ie where is the command being run from?

yes i can ping DS1

i am running the remote move request from the EMC not using any commands

i am moving the mailboxes to a remote forest and i am running it from the EMC on the Source forest

I've always pulled for any Exchange migration including remote to a new forest.  Try changing direction and pull in the mailboxes from the target forest.  What version are you migrating from/to?  Depending on the version, you might have to use -RemoteLegacy instead of -Remote.
