Hi All,

Can anyone here please explains to me as to why I cannot move back my own mailbox into another mailbox database after i have successfully migrate locally from one mailbox DB into another between two different Exchange Server 2010 SP2 mailbox server ?

No DAG is currently set in place and from the mailbox icon on the Exchange console, I can see that my mailbox got green arrow pointing to the right ?

what is that means ?

One thing that I notice with the green arrow on the mailbox icon on the Exchange management console is that I no longer able to automatically send out Of office email.

So I'm still baffled with what's that means ?

Green arrow
see the picture above comparing the normal healthy mailbox with the one mailbox with Green arrow which cannot be moved and having problem with Out of office problem.

Have you done a mailbox cleanup after the move? does the mailbox still show as a disconnected mailbox on the server you moved it FROM. this would stop you moving it back.

This is my own active mailbox.
So it is not disabled mailbox

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

No i didn't say it was a disabled mailbox.

On the sever you moved FROM is there still a DISCONNECTED mailbox showing for that account.  No mention of Disabled.

You need to clear the existing move request.

Open EMC.

Navigate to Recipient Configuration >> Move Request >> right click on your mailbox >> select Clear Move Request from the context menu.

Go back to Recipient Configuration >> Mailbox >> press F5 to refresh >> green arrow should be gone.

Once the icon is back to the way it should be right click and do another Local Move Request.
