Trying to move an Exchange mailbox between two Exchange Organizations (cross forest).

Only 1 mailbox failing with this error.
I can successfully move other mailboxes.


This is the log file:

    Hi, @Patrick Walker

    According to the error message, would you please check if there are some problems with the AD replication between domain controllers in the target forest?

    And if the migration only failed on one user, you may also migrate the mailbox via exporting and importing pst files.
    Before performing the commands,you may need to assign the Import/Export Management role to the account.
    Export: New-MailboxExportRequest
    Import: New-MailboxImportRequest
    Here is also an article from TechNet for your reference: Exchange 2010: Export Mailbox to PST

    In addition, Exchange 2010 has reached its end of support on October 13, 2020.
    It is recommended to upgrade to Exchange 2016 or Exchange 2019 for better support.

    Please exchange replication service restart and try move by command. New-MoveRequest -Identity "dmenillo" -PrimaryOnly -TargetDatabase DB -BadItemLimit 1000 -AcceptLargeDataLoss –Priority Highest
