Restoring to an Alternate Mailbox - Couldn't connect to the source mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to restore a deleted mailbox from a couple years ago and the AD User Object no longer exists.  I restore from tape and create a recovery database.  I use the command

    "New-MailboxRestoreRequest -SourceDatabase RecoveryDB -SourceStoreMailbox 'User name' -TargetMailbox administrator -TargetRootFolder Restore -AllowLegacyDNMismatch"

    and I receive error "Couldn't connect to the source mailbox".
