Moving a user to another Post Office fails
You receive an error: DB08 non unique name

The user has been moved before and a alias has been created.


Solution 1:
This problem happens when the users has been moved before from the Post Office you want him to move to. During this first move you have selected that an nickname should be created. This nickname is causing the DB08. If you deleted the nickname, the move will have no problems.

Solution 2:
Check the receiving post office if the name of the user is really unique. Maybe there is an group, nickname, user with the same name. Also check the gateway aliases and the Internet addressing overrides.
