Exchange 2003 migration to 2010 - Mass Mailbox Moves

Good morning,
I've recently installed a new exchange 2010 server in my current 2003 environment.  I have been slowly moving mailboxes over to the new server for the past few weeks.

Now that I am confident in the reliability of my new server, I wanted to look at ways I can move more than a few mailboxes at a time.  It seems that there can only be 2 or 3 mailboxes moved to the same DB at any time.  Is that correct?  Are there any tools to help manage the moves?

you have various options, firstly you can create a CSV file and use this to sublit multiple move requests as per the following example.

 
Import-CSV $CsvFile | ForEach-Object –process {New-MoveRequest -Identity $_.Identity -TargetDatabase <TargetDataBase>}

Open in new window


The CSV file just needs to have a header titled "Identity" to match up the variable in the script, the identity is the name of the users.
