When you run the New-MoveRequest cmdlet in Exchange Management Shell (EMS) or create a move request in Exchange Management Console (EMC) to move a mailbox in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment, the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service crashes. Additionally, the following event is logged in the Application log:

Log Name: Application

Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
Watson report about to be sent for process id: ProcessId, with parameters: Paramter, MSExchangeMailboxReplication, mscorlib, M.W.Win32Native.ConvertSdToStringSd, System.AccessViolationException, xxxx, VersionNumber.


This issue occurs because a System.AccessViolationException exception occurs in replication.
