KB ID 0001228 Dtd 05/08/16


I usually follow my own documented process for migrating public folders to Exchange 2016. I did that this week, and this happened;

Although it looks a pretty scary error, it’s quite straightforward to rectify. I was doing a migration and I’d moved all the mailboxes already, so I had dismounted and removed the mailbox database on the source Exchange server. (Exchange 2010). All I had to to was mount a mailbox database (I just created a new empty one, and mounted it.)

Create Mailbox Database

If I then tried to do the migration, it queued up properly!
