Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2000 to Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003
migration. Error encountered in System Manager while trying to move
mailboxes from 5.5 to 2003:

Connecting to Source Server
Access is Denied

Since the Administrator (thanks Microsoft!) account did not work, the
account being used:

- Has full admin rights in Exchange 2003
- Service account rights at the site level in 5.5
- Log on locally to DC's
- Is part of no additional AD groups

Any ideas?

Thank you,
