Changing Default Exchange Account

To go on using the default Exchange Account for Exchange migration, grant the permissions required for Exchange migration to this account (see the next steps).

Granting Read Access to the Source Active Directory Domain

The account should have Read access to the source Active Directory.

To grant this permission to the account, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, right-click the source domain name, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Security tab, click Add and select the account.
  3. Select the Source Exchange Account, and then check the Allow box for the Read permission in the Permissions box.
  4. Click the Advanced button. In the Advanced Security Settings dialog box, select the account you specified on step 2, and click Edit.
  5. In the Permission Entry dialog box, select This object and all descendant (child) objects from the Apply to drop-down list.
  6. Close the dialog boxes by clicking OK.

Granting Full Control on Exchange 2013 Mailboxes

The Source Exchange Account used by Migration Manager for Exchange agents needs the Full Control permission on each mailbox database involved in migration.

To grant the required permissions to the <User>, run the following cmdlets in Exchange Management Shell:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-ADPermission -User <User> -AccessRights GenericAll -ExtendedRights Receive-As

To verify that all permissions for the Source Exchange Account are set correctly, select any mailbox involved in the migration in the Migration Manager Console and check that the Source Exchange Account has Full Access permissions for the mailbox.

Granting the Mail Enabled Public Folders Management Role

The account used by Migration Manager for Exchange agents needs the Mail Enabled Public Folders management role in the Exchange organization to be able to create mail-enabled public folders in case of two-way public folder synchronization.

To grant the required permission to the <User> (in our example, LA\QMM_Src_Ex), run the following cmdlet in Exchange Management Shell:

New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Mail Enabled Public Folders" -User LA\QMM_Src_Ex
