Exchange 2013 Active Directory property ‎homeMDB‎ is not writeable on recipient

Written by Allen White on. Posted in Exchange 2013

When trying to migrate users from Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013, once the migration batch job has been created it then goes about syncing mailbox items before moving. Occasionally you may see the error below.

Active Directory property ‎’homeMDB‎’ is not writeable on recipient Active Directory property ‎homeMDB‎ is not writeable on recipient

This is the same solution as many Exchange issue. We need to set the correct permissions to allow Exchange to migrate the mailbox.
To fix this we give Exchange and the user account you are using permissions to move and access to mailbox via advanced features in Active directory . First launch Active Directory users and computers and enable the advanced features so we get access to the security tab. To do this click on view or press Alt+ V >advanced features.

active direcotry turn on advanced features

Once done,browse to the users mailbox who is gett ing the Active Directory property ‎homeMDB‎ is not writeable on recipient error  then select properties. Now select the security tab.

user advanced security settings

Next select Advanced. We now set the option to include inheritable permissions from this objects parents. Once done apply the settings. This change may take a moment or two so be patient . Now go back to the Exchange EMC and when you move the mailbox you will have no problems.

include inheritable objects
