Unable to move mailboxes between Exchange 2010 Servers

Posted on 2010-01-07

I currently have an Exchange 2003 server and 2 Exchange 2010 servers set-up on a test network. I am able to move users from the Exchange 2003 server to the Exchange 2010 servers via the Exchange Management Console by right clicking and initiating a "local move request". Now I have been trying to move users between the 2 Exchange 2010 servers however if I right click on a user that is on either of them I do not get the option to do a local or a remote move. Am I missing somthing here?

    Are you trying to move the same users moved from 2003 to another 2010?

    If so, try removing the move request once the mailbox i moved to 2010, so that you can initiate another move.

    Accepted Solution

    You must remove move requests to clear the move request related properties from the mailbox once the move has completed. Until these settings are cleared, you can't move the mailbox again.
