You could use Exmerge to move a bulk at a time.

I wouldn't say that exmerge is the right tool for this. Exmerge will not update the domain with the new location.

You know that you can select as many mailboxes as you like with move mailbox and leave it to get on with it? If there are any errors then it will flag it. You can even run multiple sessions, I have run 4 or 5 at a time, so 20 mailboxes are being moved at the same time. Gives the new server a good work out as well.

Thus, you would select say, 100 mailboxes, do the move mailbox wizard and then Windows will move 4 at a time, but one after the other.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

no you are using the exchange migration wizard

exmerge is a tool for extracting mailboxes to a pst you have to download it and place it in the exchange directory

Exmerge is a raw data tool. It extracts the data from the database to a PST file. I would never even consider using it for a server to server migration as it just isn't designed for that.
