I have two SBS 2003 servers and need to move the mailboxes between them.

When I do Exchange Tasks, Move Mail box

the next screen comes up disabled

Exchange Task Wizard

Current Mailbox Store
Current MailBox Store: CATBERT/First Storage Group/Mailbox Store (CATBERT)

Server

Mailbox Store


The Next button is disabled, the three fields, Current Mailbox Store, Server & Mailbox Store are all disabled. The second two are empty.

How can I do this?

Please check whether you are using frontend server for moving the mailbox.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

The problem is probably with this statement you made:
"I have two SBS 2003 servers and need to move the mailboxes between them."

Since there can only be 1 SBS server in a forest these are in essence 2 seperate Exchange Organizations.
You cannot move mailboxes this way.

What you need to be doing is MIGRATING from one SBS server to the other.

Suggestion:
Post a 20 point question in the following TA with a link back to this question. There are several SBS experts that can assist.
