Exchange 2007 Mailbox Move Cancellation Request Stuck
Posted on 2012-09-14
We're in the process of moving mailboxes from one Exchange 2007 SP3 mailbox server to another Exchange 2007 SP3 mailbox server (better hardware).
We're using the GUI for the move.
This morning, four mailboxes where still moving. One of these mailboxes had been running for 9 hours. I clicked Cancel to stop the move, however it's now stuck with cancel greyed out and the mailboxes still saying 'Moving messages', however the counter doesn't increase.
It's been like this for over an hour now. Users are unable to access these four mailboxes.
Event viewer has one 1008 event ID - The move-mailbox task for mailbox XX failed. Error: Failed to copy message to the destination mailbox store with error: The operation was cancelled.
Is there anyway to find out what's it's doing? Can the move request be cancelled in another other way?
