Exchange 2013 Mailbox Move Issue

I currently have an Exchange 2013 srver with 5 databases on it.  I am trying to move some mailboxes from one DB to another.  When I use the EAC to perform the migration it says the move was completed successfully, but nothing moved....

run Get-MailboxStatistics –Identity username and verify where the mailbox is at present.

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.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Try moving the mailbox using powershell. using New-Moverequest command

I faced similar problem few months ago and moving mailboxes using powershell was successful.

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
