I need to get a report on all mailboxes recently moved to a Mailbox Databse to show their current status.

If Move has Completes is in progress or qued.

Is there a cmd to show me all current mailboxes qued or in progress and most recent mailboxes moved that completed?

I know I can use  the following for one mailbox ata  time status but Id like to get something on them all.  I am currently trying to move about 15 mailboxes and need a status on all.

Get-MoveRequest -Identity

Great Thanks Ive added my users to a DG so I can sue the above cmd....

Is there a similar command to Move the Distribution Group.  OS move all members mailboxes to a specified Mailbox Database using the group name instead of individually?

Get-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "groupname" | get-mailbox | New-moverequest -TargetDatabase DB01 -BadItemLimit 51  -acceptLargeDataLoss
