Exchange 2010 SP1 mailbox move errors

When moving mailbox from a exchange 2003 server to a exchange 2010 server I ran into some warnings and errors.

When you try to move a mailbox via the wizard and choose “Skip the corrupted messsages.” and select to skip more then 50 messages you get the following error:
“Large BadItemLimit (50+) is specified. Please confirm your intention to accept a large amount of data loss by specifying AcceptLargeDataLoss.”

Solution: Use the Exchange Management Shell and use “New-MoveRequest -Identity “Mailboxname” -BadItemLimit 50+ -AcceptLargeDataLoss”
You can use other options if you like, but the -AcceptLargeDataLoss resolves this issue. More option on the New-MoveRequest cmdlet are available here.

Another error I ran into was, “Active Directory operation failed on Servername. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A45, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MoveRequest], ADOperationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : D6EC1D97,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest”

Solution: Go to the Active Directory user account witch you are trying to move. Select properties, security tab and then Advanced. Make sure the “Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects. Include these with the entries explicity defined here.” is checked. If not enable it and then apply the setting.
