Attempting to migrate a mailbox from Exchange 2007 Server to 2013 throws the error: “Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient”

Problem

You attempt to migrate a mailbox from Exchange 2007 Server to Exchange 2013 Server through in the Exchange Server 2013 administrative console but the move fails with:

Data migrated:
Migration rate:
Error: MigrationPermanentException: Active Directory property ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient ‎'domain.com/Disabled Accounts/Rewan, Sheena‎'. --> Active Directory property ‎'homeMDB‎' is not writeable on recipient ‎'domain.com/Disabled Accounts/Rewan, Sheena‎'.
Report: srewan@domain.bm Download the report for this user

Solution

I find the most probable cause to this error when attempting to migrate a mailbox is due to Inheritance being turned off for the user object’s security permissions.  Proceed to open the user account’s security properties and ensure Inheritance is enabled:
