Error Moving Mailbox Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010

Today I had an issue moving a mailbox from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 where the following error was generated in Exchange Management Shell.

Active Directory operation failed on domaincontroller.domain.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150BB9, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MoveRequest], ADOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 7189915F,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest

The error occurs if the account being moved does not have correct Exchange 2010 permissions set on the user account in Active Directory.  On the user account in Active Directory Users and Computers on the Security Tab under Advanced, "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent" was not selected as shown below:
Note: In order to see the Security Tab on the user account in Active Directory Users and Computers you must enable "Advanced Features" which can be found under the view menu.
Simply select Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent.
 After making this change the move worked as expected.
