According to the Exchange Shell error, it seems that root public folder mailbox is set to "LockedForMigration
". If you are in migration phase from legacy public folders to modern public folders in Exchange Server 2016 and during this process and you have created the public folder mailbox with HoldForMigration
mode. To check the status of Root Public Folder mailbox, execute the given below PS command.(Get-OrganizationConfig).RootPublicFolderMailbox
If "LockedForMigration" status is set to "True" then it means that HoldForMigration
mode is "ON" against the root public folder mailbox. The HoldForMigration
parameter locks the public folder hierarchy in Exchange Server so that no public folders can be created until the migration is completed.
If you mistakenly created the root public folder mailbox with the HoldForMigration
parameter, then you must delete all public folder mailboxes that are present in the organization.
For your reference, you may also refer to the given below Microsoft Tech-Net article in which all the details are mentioned.https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2786607
