Coress-forest mailbox migration failed


  • Hi There,

    We are trying to migrate mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 cross-forest.  We have setup two-way trusts and confirmed that the trust is working properly (have validated the trust, can ping each other by FQDN or shortname, can browse the accounts from the other forest). 

    I have migrated user account use Prepare-MoveRequest.ps1 and the account have been migrated ok.  However when I tried to migrated SID history using ADMT, it gives the error

    "Could not verify auditing and TcpipClientSupport on domains.  Will not be able to migrate Sid's.  Access is denied"

    Then if I run the following to migrate mailbox:

    New-MoveRequest -Identity "testmail" -RemoteLegacy  -TargetDatabase "database01" -RemoteGlobalCatalog 'dc1.local’ -RemoteCredential $Cred -TargetDeliveryDomain 'dchost.local'

    I Will get this error "MapiExceptionNetworkError: Unable to make connection to the server. (hr=0x80040115, ec=-2147221227)

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    The error indicates that the user account that is used to run ADMT does not have enough permissions to perform the migration in one or both of the domains.

  • Hi Manu,

    What permission does the account need?  The account that i was using is in the built-in administrator group in the target domain and I have added the account into the administrators group in the source domain.  What else does it need to have in terms of Exchange permissions on Exchange 2003 (source domain) and Exchange 2010 (target domain)?

  • Try using MigrationWiz. They specialize in Exchange migrations. Very easy to use.

  • You should be a member of 'Organization management container too in target domain

  • Account  should have Admin privileges in both domains (or an account with delegated MigratesIDHistory extended rights in the target domain).
