Exchange 2003 to 2010 Transition in a lab environment in VMware ESXi
When I move all of the legacy Exchange 2003 mailboxes to the Exchange 2010 server I see a lot of warnings in the event viewer.
Why is the Event Viewer full of Warning events saying: "User John Doe ... failed to log on because their mailbox is in the process of being moved"
I'm testing this transition in VMware. I'm the only person accessing these systems and I'm not logging in as these users. Why are there events which seem to indicate all of the users are failing to log in while their mailboxes are being migrated? Is this normal or is this something bad which might be slowing my mailbox moves down?
Your comments below are accurate in the context of a real production transition but the mystery for me in this situation is this: This isn't a transition in a production environment. There aren't any users other than me logging on. I'm only logging in occasionally with the Administrator account.
This is a test transition on a VMware ESXi lab server completely isolated on a different VLAN on a different switch at a different site away from any real production users, away from any of the users the Event Viewer Warnings are indicating are "failing to log in".
Thanks in advance.
