Hi,

While migrating users from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010, using the exchange 2010 console, I move them to the old database of exchange 2003 instead of the new Exchange 2010 data base.

How do I put them in exchange 2010 database now. They are already moved.

Thanks.

They were created originally in 2003.

I moved them to Exchange 2010 using Exchange management console, but they still show that they are in exchange 2003 database not in exchange 2010 database.

How di I now put them in exchange 2010 database.  When I right click on the user account in exchange 2010 console, there is no move feature available.

Thanks.

Please Close and open the Exchange Management Console and then check the status.

On Exchange 2010 run:

Get-Mailbox | ft Name,Server

That way you can find where each mailbox resides. Also you can try to initiate the move from Exchange 2003.


To move "user1" mailbox you can run:
New-MoveRequest –Identity user1 –TargetDatabase ‘New Mailbox Database’

Open in new window
