Exchange Mailbox Move Error – (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS)

KB ID 0000434 


When attempting to move a mailbox (usually during a migration), you see the following error.


The following error(s) occurred while saving changes
Set-Mailbox Failed
Active directory operation failed on (username} This error is not retriable. Additional 
information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active Directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-013150BB9, problem 4003 
The user has insufficient access rights.


1. On a domain controller launch “Active directory users and computers” > View > Advanced options.

2. Locate the user with the problem mailbox, right click > properties > Security Tab > Advanced > Tick “Include inheritable permissions from this objects parent” > Apply > OK.

Include inheritable permissions from this objects parent

3. Try and move the mailbox again, (in some cases you may need to delete the move request from within Exchange System Manager before it will retry).

Particularly after a migration this can continue to be a problem, you can stop it on a domain wide basis by doing this.
