Resource ‎CiAgeOfLastNotification‎(System)‎ is unhealthy and should not be accessed error when moving mailbox

Original KB number:   2931079


When you try to offboard or move a mailbox, you get the following error message:

Resource ‎'CiAgeOfLastNotification‎(System)‎‎' is unhealthy and shouldn‎'t be accessed

You experience these symptoms in one of the following scenarios:

  • You have a hybrid deployment of on-premises Exchange Server and of Exchange Online and you try to move a mailbox from Exchange Online to the on-premises environment.
  • You try to perform a cross-forest mailbox move between two on-premises Exchange servers.


This issue can occur if an index in the on-premises environment is corrupted.


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Rebuild the content index catalog on the on-premises Exchange server. For more information about how to do this, see Reseed the search catalog.

  2. After the index catalog is rebuilt, wait a few minutes until the fast engine starts indexing again.

  3. Determine whether indexing is completed. To do this, run the Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus cmdlet.

    If indexing is completed, the value in the output should show as Healthy.

After indexing is completed, perform the mailbox move request.
