Microsoft Exchange 2007 to 2010 Mailbox Migration Process

Hi,

I'm currently at the beginning of a Microsoft Exchange 2007 to 2010 mailbox migration project (~350 mailboxes -> 1.2TB), but I've hit some stumbling blocks. Every time I kick off a mini migration of 10-20 mailboxes from the Exchange 2007 server, the server's CPU resources go straight to 100% for hours and hours making the server practically unresponsive, dropping inbound mail, and disconnecting client sessions.

Background:
Old Exchange Environment: Single Exchange 2007 virtual machine with all roles
New Exchange Environment: 2 x Exchange 2010 virtual machine with all roles

vHardware Specs:
Old Exchange Environment: 4 vCPUs, 32GB vRAM
New Exchange Environment: Each have 2 vCPU with 8GB vRAM

Are there any best practices that I can use to throttle CPU usage during batch migrations?
Or any other tips that other Experts have used to stabilise the migration process?

Thanks,
Fin

Looks like you are lacking in both CPU & RAM for your VM's
If possible add more CPU & RAM to your VM's.

The Exchange 2010 VMs are not having performance issues.
The Exchange 2007 VM has the maximum number of cores allocated to it (4), as the ESXi host only has 4 cores, and there are no other VMs running on this ESXi host to contend for vCPU resources.
Memory resources are not an issue on any of the VMs.

You can do the Migration kickoff from the Exchange 2010 as well, did you try that :)
