Struggle of finding regarding the meaningful info

Hi,

My creation of a PST at main drive c:pstfilesuser.pst to test importing PSTs into Exchange 2010 via PowerShell.

I got the installation of 64bit outlook in server, and also do adding “import export roles” to the account I used before.

Then I started the use of the command ‘Import – Mailbox – Identity (Username) – PSTFolderPath

c:pstfilesuser.pst’ to import the PST file into (username)’s mailbox.

And hit the following error:

Error was found for XXX because: Error occurred in the step: Approving object. An unknown error has occurred., error code: -2147221219 + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (0:Int32) [Import-Mailbox], RecipientTaskException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CFFD629B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.ImportMailbox

Could you please help me out to know what is going on here?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Oliviarwilkes,
 
The possible cause of your issue is the missing homeMDB attribute on the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant mailbox. Follow these steps to resolve the error message:
 
1. Find out the Exchange database distinguished name:
 
a. Click START > Search for Adsiedit.msc using the Search programs and files box.
 
b. Click Connect to in the Action menu.
 
c. Click Configuration in the Select a well-known naming Context box -> Click OK.
 
d. Expand the following information:
 
– Configuration (The_Domain_Controller_Name.The_Name_Of_The_Domain.com)
 
– CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com
 
– CN=Services
 
– CN=Microsoft Exchange
 
– CN=organization_name
 
– CN=Administrative Groups
 
– CN=Exchange AdministrativeGroups (id)
 
– CN=Databases
 
e. Go to the details pane -> Right-click CN = database_name entry with a Class value of msExchPrivateMDB -> Click Properties.
 
Reminder: Choose the mailbox database that has an active copy in your server if there are multiple database_name entries.  
 
f. Click distinguishedName in the Attribute Editor tab -> Click View.
 
g. Copy the path indicated in the Value box -> Click Cancel twice.
 
h. Close Active Directory Interfaces (ADSI) Edit tool.
 
2. The following steps will set the homeMDB attribute:
