Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property 'homeMDB' is not writeable on recipient ' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to move mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013. Getting this error. If I enable inheritance of the user properties, then working fine. Since,  I have around 700 users, it is not possible to go every users property and enable inheritance. This is very urgent requirement as I have to complete the activity before Saturday. Please suggest

    Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property 'homeMDB' is not writeable on recipient 'testing.local/Users/Dummy'. --> Active Directory property 'homeMDB' is not writeable on recipient 'testing.local/Users/Dummy'.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Arif,

    In general, the inheritance issue will not affect all users, please try to select some other users randomly and check if the inheritance has been enabled. 

    If not all, you can move mailboxes directly, and enable inheritance for the mailboxes which moved failed, then move them again.

    If all users don't have inheritance enabled, we can refer to the following article to enable it by using powershell:
