Cant move the Arbitration mailbox

Hi Guys,

I am experiencing a small issue moving the arbitration mailbox.
when I run the New-MoveRequest cmdlet I get the below error

mailbox ' microsoft exchange' has a completed move request associated with it. Before you create a new move request for the mailbox, run the Remove-MoveRequest cmdlet to clear the completed move request.

I ran the remove-MoveRequest cmdlet but apparently there are a couple of mailboxes named 'Microsoft Exchange' that I am unable to clear and I get the following error.

The operation couldn't be performed because 'Microsoft Exchange' matches multiple entries. ( see attached ).

I would like to have all the arbitration mailboxes located on the prod-mbd01 database as the mbd02 needs to get removed.

can you guys give me a hand with this ?

Get-MoveRequest | where {$_.status -eq “Completed”} | Remove-MoveRequest

Open in new window
