Exchange 2007 > 2013 Mailbox move

Hello:

I am trying to migrate from Exchange 2007 to 2013.  There are about 50 mailboxes in the organization.  I successfully moved the first 12 or so but no more will move.  I'm using the web console to initiate the moves and the shell to monitor them.  When I do a move the status is Queued.  I stop and restart the MS Exchange Mailbox Replication service and the status goes to InProgress but nothing more happens.  I waited on a few small mailboxes many hours over the weekend and they never go beyond InProgress.  I don't believe its a single afflicted mailbox as I've tried several different mailboxes one-at-a-time.  I've tried stopping and restarting the MS Exchange Mailbox Replication service and I've restarted both servers.  

The old server has SP3 and RU10.  The new server has CU2.

Thanks for any ideas.

You can take a look at Step-by-Step Exchange 2007 to 2013 Migration the bolg have four part

Still if problem persist you can try 3rd party vendors for migration; which will recover your exchange and move all mail boxes the tool are irrespective of number of mail boxes for a single exchange server you can recover as many of mailboxes

Does event viewer have any errors or warnings
Does the databases in the exchange 2013 has mailbox limits. If so remove them and try again.

Hi,

To perform a quick conversion of the selected or all mailboxes I can suggest you to try some links given below:

If still you are unable to solve in your problem, then as said by Pankaj it will be good to use third party tools.

If you run get-moverequest | get-moverequeststatistics from EMS, what percentage does it show? You need to look at the logs to see whether something is being logged during the move.

If you remove the requests and do one at a time, does that change things?

I found the problem thanks to Simon's suggestion to use the get-moverequeststatistics.  There I discovered the moves were stuck in a StalledDueToCI state.  I found an article about creating the group ContentSubmitters".  I followed the steps in this article, rebooted the server and the moves are going smoothly since.

Thanks to all for all your help.
