"The operation couldn't be performed because object 'Arbitration' couldn't be found on 'DomainController.domain.local'"

In order to remove an unwanted database in an Exchange 2019 environment (with two Exchange servers), I found that the unwanted database had an Arbitration mailbox which would need to be moved to another database first.

When attempting to move Arbitration mailboxes to another database:
get-mailbox Arbitration | new-moverequest -TargetDatabase "Mailboxdb01"

I received error:
"The operation couldn't be performed because object 'Arbitration' couldn't be found on 'DomainController.domain.local'"

In Active Directory within Users container, I can see the System Mailboxes and can also see them in Exchange Management Shell.

Also note, that this Exchange 2019 environment replaced an Exchange 2013 environment.

Please advise and thanks
