Moving the database takes time and is offline while the move is taking place.  Why not create another database (store) on E: and just move all the mailboxes.  Then remove the store.  This should be much less disruptive to your users.

-Identity 'Mailbox Database 1717131140' should be the mailbox server's name, not the mailbox's name.

eg -Identity server1

Leew,
   So can I create another database and move the mailboxes during operating hours? Can I move individual mailboxes or does it have to be done all or nothing?

Individual mailboxes are fine.  With Exchange Standard 2007 and later, you can have 4 information stores.  (Not that you should, but you can.  So if you plan on using 3 or less, you'll always have ONE free to use to migrate locations without imposing significant down-time on your users.

Thanks,
   I'm trying it with my mailbox now and I guess it's in the process of moving because there is green arrow symbol next to my name in the mailbox list and the new database is getting larger (i assume it's importing my mail)  I don't see the original one getting any smaller. Does it just copy my data out or move it?

I don't know if the move worked. I get this error in the event log

Mailbox cleanup could not completely remove the mailbox for user /o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=Jason Komendat (Root Fid 1-10) following mailbox removal. Encountered error 0xfffffae8. Should this message continue to persist for the same mailbox, it may be indicative of a problem that requires further investigation.

And the New Local Move request option in my account no longer shows up.
