We are moving our Exchange 2010 to a new server.

We have all of our mailboxes set with a local archive on a separate mailbox database. We do this by right clicking the mailbox, selecting enable archive, and selecting "Select a specific mailbox database rather than having one selected automatically" The database we store the archives in is called "Archives". Will this be moved automatically with move mailboxes tool or do I have to take extra steps to get the archive moved?

Unless you specify a different database in the new-moverequest command, the archive will move to the same database. Refer to the technetium article on the new-moverequest syntax http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351123.aspx

So when I tell it to move the user mailbox it will move both the default mailbox as well as the archive mailbox to their respective databases?

No. You need to be specific with the destination of both the mailbox and archive. You can move each separately using the primaryonly and archiveonly switches.

Read the technet article closly, it describes each switch in detail
