Exchange Local Move requests stuck at Queued

I've recently upgraded to Exchange 2010 SP3.  I can't seem to move users to different databases anymore, instead they stay stuck at queued.

This happens with mailboxes that haven't ever been moved before (this is not the soft-deleted or adsi move flags/source etc attribute issue)

I tried rebooting all mail servers, restarting mailbox replication service on cas, deleting the move requests.  Nothing seems to work.

are the databases healthy?

 You can open the command shell and run a few commands to check the status of the move request.

Get-MoveRequest

Get-MoveRequestStatistics

Get-MailboxStatistics

also check these two sites to see if it is related:

It turned out to just take forever but eventually moved.  Not sure why though.

I had tried all those steps.  Everything just said queued or moving.  DB's were in good state.  I don't think that last article applies because even newly created objects would get stuck.  

Took about 4 hours for it to start.  Must be something in Exchange/AD replication I guess.

Thanks for your input though.  Giving you the points.
