When trying to move a mailbox you receive
MapiExceptionNoSupport: IExchangeFastTransferEx.TransferBuffer failed
- Exchange 2003
- Migrating to Exchange 2010 SP1
- You use a product that directly touches your mail boxes (i.e. Enterprise Vault)
- Moving between 2003 mail stores works
- Moving to 2010 RTM mail store may also work.
- Soma mailboxes may move ok but not all.
- Ran ISINTEG on the database to look for any logical corruption
- Tried moving to another mail store before migrating to 2010 SP1
- Permission on the mailboxes may have been changed by a 3rd party product.
- Exchange 2010 is more sensitive to proper permission setting on a mailbox
- Reset the DACL on the mail boxes with the issue
- Download FPDAVADMIN
- Install on a workstation
- Run PFDAVADMIN and connect to the specifc exchange server mailbox
- File –> Connect –> Select “All Mailboxes” and populate the Exchange and GC names.
- Expand mailboxes
- Right click the mailbox with the issue and choose fix folder DACL
The queue in ‘Mailbox Database” database already contains a move request for ‘User name’, while AD reports the mailbox as not being moved. It is possible that someone created this move request recently, while targeting a different domain controller, and AD replication did not yet occur. You can examine this move request by running ‘Get-MoveRequestStatistics -MoveRequestQueue ‘Mailbox Database ‘ -MailboxGuid 02egha76-a9e5-430c-brb7-cdegrt15ee1f -IncludeReport | fl’. If you believe this to be an abandoned move request, you can remove it by running ‘Remove-MoveRequest -MoveRequestQueue ‘Mailbox Database’ -MailboxGuid 02egha76-a9e5-430c-brb7-cdegrt15ee1f.
If you had a failed move and now when you try to move the mailbox you get the error above, you can follow the direction in the error to resolve.
remove-MoveRequest -MoveRequestQueue ‘Mailbox Database’ -MailboxGuid 02egha76-a9e5-430c-brb7-cdegrt15ee1f
But if like me you had over 100 mailboxes to do that it it may be a little to tedious, easy fix….
make a new mailbox database and move the all users to it, then delete the one that you couldn’t move to.
