Run Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity username | fl

This will give you detailed statistics on the mailbox move and hopefully shed some light as to what's happened to it.

Did you clear the mailbox move request? It doesn't sound like the move request even registered which is very odd.

Try using the New-MoveRequest command as mentioned by Sudhir above:
New-MoveRequest -Identity  dbsadmin -TargetDatabase "OtherDB"

Open in new window
