However I have 10,000 mailboxes to move.
Thank you Roy

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.

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

SembeeCommented:
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.
