  1. Thank you. Do you know what causes this?

    No, couldn't find the cause for this issue.

  3. I don't think we are supposed to modify anything. This has happened because you have viewed with EMC of a lower version compared to the higher one being migrated to. Discovery Search Mailboxes don't exist in Exchange 2007.

    No, I was getting same error when I viewed in Exchange 2010 EMS. I have seen this issue few times in Exchange 2007 and 2010 Coexistence environment.
