Exchange 2013 Mailbox Migration Failed

In the process of migrating all of my mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to 2013, all of my mailboxes migrated successfully except for 51. Some of them failed because of a mailbox size restriction that was present while trying to move them while others failed to move because of this error: Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient

However, I believe I have corrected both issues so that the migration can go successfully but when I try to run the migration again it shows the mailboxes trying to sync, then shortly after the Total changes to a '0' then the migration batch completes without actually moving anything.

Any idea on how to fix this? The migration job that is moving all the mailboxes is still going so is it because i need to reset iis and then retry running their migration?

This is because of permission issue!!
Go to Security tab of the account in AD Users and Computers. Check Advanced window, make sure that inheritance is enabled. Please refer this link for more information:http://www.techieshelp.com/exchange-2013-active-directory-property-%E2%80%8Ehomemdb%E2%80%8E-writeable-recipient/

I already corrected that issue. I was able to figure out by using stopping the migration batch that was running, open PowerShell, run Get-MigrationUser, noting all the Identities that failed, then running Remove-MigrationUser -Identity TonySmith. By doing that I was able to rerun a migration batch and get the users migrated successfully.
