Is there an easy way to migrate a storage group and mailbox database to another exchange server? The servers are not in a clustered environment. There are two mainly to split the load. Please advise!

.\ResetSearchIndex.ps1 –force <targetdatabase> is where I am stuck. I ran this command, it produced errors but did complete but when I try to search in a mailbox that belongs to the migrated mailbox database I receive the warning that searches may take longer because the microsoft exchange search feature is not available. Any ideas?

I tried .\ResetSearchIndex.ps1 –force all

and now everyone is having this issue from what I can tell. There were errors that certain databases could not be found. They are there, it says our DC is failing to find them though.

I am seeing "No Index for Database: Mailbox Store 2" when I run that command.

I have also tried stopping the exchange search index/exchange search services, renaming the catalog's for each storage group and restarting the services to rebuild the index catalogs. The new catalog folders are being created but I still recieve the same error when I try to search in the OWA. The script I tried above does not work to resolve it either. How much time can it take to rebuild the indexes? Could it take hours?
