When you run a script that you created to move a mailbox across administrative groups, you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
This mailbox cannot be moved to a different Exchange Server 2003 administrative group while in a mixed Exchange 5.5/Exchange Server 2003 Organization.
Error code: -1056749031
This problem occurs because Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 does not provide an interface that lets scripts be written to move mailboxes across administrative groups.
The FCrossAG cross-administrative group flag is not exposed through the Component Object Model (COM) interface. Therefore, the FCrossAG flag is always set to FALSE. The user interface of the Move Mailbox Wizard resolves this problem by setting the FCrossAG flag by using an internal interface.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
The issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section may also occur with Exchange 5.5 server and Exchange server 2003 co-existing in same Exchange organization, but in different administrative groups. In this scenario, if you try to move mailboxes across sites programmatically by using CDOExm.dll code, you receive the following error message:
This error message is the same as the one that you receive from earlier versions of CDOExm.dll.
