Mailbox Batch Move stalls with "'Content Indexing' lagging behind on resource" message. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am attempting to transition from Exchange 2007 (SP3, RU10) to Exchange 2013 (CU1) and have been struggling with Batch Moves of mailboxes. Any newly created mailboxes or those with very few objects move across just fine. All others begin but stall giving the message below:

    "4/8/2013 8:40:56 PM [SERVERNAME] The job is currently stalled due to 'Content Indexing' lagging behind on resource 'CiAgeOfLastNotification(Database Name)'"

    Anyone experienced this or managed to get it working? I'd really appreciate your assistance.

  • Hi

    Please refer to the solution on this thread


    It seems there is a bug in the RTM its looking for a AD Group that does not exist will probably be fixed later. The fix is:

    Create a new AD group named ‘ContentSubmitters’ and grant ‘Admistrators’ and ‘NetworkService’ full access to it

    There after restart "Microsoft Exchange Search" & "Microsoft Exchange Search Host Controller" services

    Hope those help
