Dear All

I need your help urgent

I am trying to use the move-mailbox command to move a mailbox from one
forest/Exchange Org to another forest/Exchange Org

In my test phase, I took Ex2003 and the OLD DC Physical to Virtual and used them by their database in separate lab, and I installed new windows server 2008 and new exchange server 2007, when I used the move mailbox command to move mailboxes across forest, the command completed successfully with no errors

Now, in life environment, when I used the move-mailbox command to move mailbox across forest I got the error below

I"m using the following command

Move-Mailbox -TargetDatabase "EX2007\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" -Identity mtesta@SRC.net -NTAccountOU "ou=ash,ou=TRGT,dc=TRGT,dc=loc" -TargetForestCredential $TargetCredentials-GlobalCatalog ash-dc-01 -SourceForestGlobalCatalog dc-1.ashgroup.net -SourceForestCredential $SourceCredentials

The data starts to move but just as it is about to finish (during the
"updating attributes stage") I get the following error:
[ERROR] Error was found for mtesta (mtesta@SRC.net) because: Error occurred in the step: Updating attributes. Invalid Argument., error code: -2147024809

Note: in live environment, the active directory topology distributed in multiple sites, in migration site, I have my DC2008 and Ex2007 in the same site, and physically they connected directly to old DC and EX2003 (source forest), all FSMO roles for target forest are held by another DC in another site

For the credentials, in source forest, I"m using Enterprise admin account, in target forest, I"m using user who member of Domain admins and Exchange organization admins

Any help will be highly appreciated
