Ensure that you have permissions on the source and destination domains
to complete the move. The following error message is logged in the
MoveTree.err file if you have insufficient permissions:
Error: 0x2098 Insufficient Access Rights to perform the operation.
MoveTree cross domain move failed. The extended error is 00002098:
SrcErr:DSID-0031B02E2, problem 5003 (WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0
• Use quotation marks for parameters with spaces.
• Use all lowercase letters when designating the source and
destination subtree root domain names. If you use uppercase letters,
the following error message is logged in the MoveTree.err file:
Error: 0x20e4 The Naming Context could not be found.
MoveTree cross domain move failed.
The extended error is 0000020e4: SvcErr: DSID-031B02E2, problem 5003
(WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0

As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
