Hi,

Please can someone help me with this.

I was moving a lot of users from one mailbox store to another using the Exchange 2007 Management Console.
I was doing this with multiple jobs.
Unfortunately the console crashed whilst 2 hours through.

All the users mailboxes that were being moved still show in the mailbox view but when i try to move them again it errors saying "failed to open mailbox". Those users mailboxes now show in disconnected mailboxes but I can't attach them because it thinks they still have one attached.

Please help me.

Thanks

James

It might still be moving. The tools crashing should not matter. I move mailboxes all the time and close the EMC. Any idea how long you had left? Maybe wait until that time.

Before you create a new move request for the mailbox, you must run the "Remove-Move Request" cmdlet to clear the completed move request. For assistance, you can visit this article : Troubleshooting moving mailboxes.
Alternatively, some automated option like(http://www.exchangemailboxmigration.com/) can be an appropriate and better option for hassle free migration.

The jobs hadn't finished so just had to wait for them to complete in the background.
Thanks for the help
