Exchange 2010 to 2013 Migration fails with “You cannot have ArchiveDomain set when archive is not enabled for this user”

You cannot have ArchiveDomain set when archive is not enabled for this user.

I have previously done a Hybrid integration with Office 365 with my Exchange 2010 server and enabled Archiving online when I migrated my user to Exchange online but then I finished my demo and decided to bring the user back on-premises.

Now I have deployed Exchange 2013 and wanted to migrate the same user to Exchange 2013 from 2010 but the migration request fails with the following message.

On Exchange 2010, I launched Exchange Management shell and ran the following cmdlet which will show any attribute that has arch in it for the user Mohammed

Get-mailbox User | fl arch*

clip_image002

Since there’s no archive mailbox then the archive domain is invalid and I don’t even own it anymore as it has expired a while ago.

Resolution:

I will try to remove the archive domain object from the user’s properties using the following cmdlet

Set-mailbox mailboxname -ArchiveDomain $null

Using the above cmdlet seems to fail due to this property being administered by Exchange server so it’ll have to be removed manually.

I will open the user’s attribute and delete the value and try to continue the migration again.

I’ll click on Edit then Clear and OK
