I am migrating a test user from Exchange 2003 in Forest/Domain A, to a new Exchange 2010 server in Forest/Domain B. I am new to the EM Shell and Exchange 2010. I am following the instructions posted here: http://msgsense.com/2011/01/18/cross-forest-move-mailbox-request-from-exchange-2003-to-2010/
I get all the way down to step 8 where I have to run New-MoveRequest and after I enter the command, it just sits at a >> prompt and appears to do nothing... I can type or close the window but it doesn't take me back to the actual prompt, just two >> symbols... am I supposed to run something else? I'm stuck!
Here is my basic network info:
"server" is the sole DC/GC for "DomainA.com" and runs Server & Exchange 2003.
"newserver" is the DC/GC for "Office.DomainB.com" and runs Server 2008
"exchange" is the new Exchange 2010 box
Here is the full command I am trying to run for Step 8:
New-MoveRequest -Identity “CN=testuser, OU=Staff,DC=office,DC=doma
” -RemoteLegacy -TargetDatabase “Mailbox Database 0791256001 -RemoteGlobalCatalog server.domainA.com -RemoteCredential $Remote -TargetDeliveryDomain “office.domainB.com”
I DO see the test users "disconnected" mailbox on exchange 2010 and the user exists in the new forest too... but if I try to connect the Mailbox to the users account, it cannot find the account... When I finished step 7 (Prepare Move Request), it DID say "1 mailbox ready to move"...
What am I missing here?
