Cancel mailbox moves already in progess from within Exchange 2007 management shell ?

I started moving a database of mailboxes from an old 2003 Exchange server to a newer 2007 Exchange server. At the pace it's going, I'm not certain it will finish all the mailboxes before people start coming back into the office in the morning.

I started the moves from within the Exchange Management Shell. Is there a specific command I use to stop them ? My understanding of the mailbox moves is that Exchange is literally copying the contents from one server to another, for redundancy in case of power loss, etc, in case a mailbox was not finished copying.

Could I just restart the server early in the morning to stop the rest of the moves ? Some other way ?
