Exmerge the mailboxes in the old Exchange server

Hi ALL,

We are trying to Exmerge the mailboxes in the old Exchange server INEXC747. As all the mailboxes are migrated, Exmerge fails. Referring the Exmerge log.(Information store service is very much running, something to do with the Permissions it seems) Would like to know how did anyone handle with this?

Regards, RAJ

What I recall we did was use to pubfolder (can’t recall the name) permissions tool to reset all the permissions, Then do the export.

You use ExMerge in the normal manner, under an account that has access to the mailboxes but you must bear in mind one thing.
 
When the Priasoft migration tool runs, as part of the migration process it modifies the mailbox attributes to disable MAPI and HTTP access to a migrated mailbox.
 
You need to re-enable mapi access and allow it to replicate before you will be able to run ExMerge against the mailbox, as ExMerge connects via MAPI.
 
If you open ADSIEDIT and look at a migrated User, you will find the “protocolSettings” attribute:
 
 

It should contain two entries:

You need to highlight “MAPI§0§§§§§§§” and click remove (followed by OK and OK) before you will be able to run ExMerge against the box. This will re-enable MAPI access to the mailbox.

This can be scripted, when I get a few minutes a little later I will try and get a script together for you, but that should give you something to work with.

The easiest way to do this is to use ADModify (attached to this email), select the accounts to be modified and then on the exchange features tab, choose enable MAPI:

 

I would suggest you test this on a single user first, then a small group before moving on to a larger number.
