Exchange 2003 to 2010 Move Request Timming
Posted on 2011-02-21
We are migrating some mailboxes in our test lab from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and we've mgirated a handfull and they are on the new mailbox database. I migrated a bunch at one time and didn't pay much attention to how long it took. Now I'm trying to migrate a single mailbox however it's been shy 24 hours and it still shows it's a legacy mailbox on the old database.
First question; how long does it take to move from one database to another? I know there are variables such as speed of network and size of mailbox. This is a very small mailbox and it's on the same VM host server.
Secondly; is there any way I can force it to move now? Obviously, I don't care about what it does since it's just a lab...
