Exchange 2010 - Final Stage of Moving Mailboxes


I'm wondering what the lockout duration would be within the final stage of an online mailbox migration in Exchange 2010 as Microsoft states that this duration as "brief" without elaboration.  I understand that this time is likely in correlation to the size of the mailbox itself and I'm thinking there is a formula I can use.

There is no lockout duration for the final stage online mailbox migration in exchange 2010.

The user is only locked out of the account for a brief time at the end of the process (when the final synchronization occurs).

sushil84 - it seems as though you agree with me but don't agree.  I'm stating that there is a duration where the individual was be locked out at the end of the process.  Microsoft states its brief but how long is brief?

I'm looking through the links and it seems as though the MRS will move changed/new items but still it doesn't look like that there is a good indicator of the rate in which it does so.
