  1. Locate the MSExchangeMailboxReplication.exe.config file in the following path:
    <Exchange Installation Path>\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\MSExchangeMailboxReplication.exe.config
  2. Change the DataImportTimeout setting from the default value to 20.
  3. Save the changes to the file.
  4. Restart the MSExchangeMailboxReplication service.
  5. On all CA servers, change the DataImportTimeout setting to 20.
  6. Allow up to four hours for the migration batches to resume as usual.
