Issues completing migration to Exchange 2010

I have a client that has a lingering problem with a migration from Exchange 2003 to 2010 (both servers are still on the domain but the 03 server is going to fail imminently so i want to 'retire' it cleanly as a matter of urgency) -- two issues, 1. some migrated mailboxes are still showing as 'legacy' - their Properties show's they're connected to the new Mailbox Store (see attached) - their Outlook clients also show as being connected to the new store.

2. The second problem is one users Change Request failed and although I've cancelled the failed request the option to request a Change Request is no longer available for this user only, plus their mailbox properties shows as still being connected to the old Mailbox Store (see attached) as does outlook.

Any suggestions how to resolve these two problems please?

For problem #1, it looks to me as though you haven't deleted the move requests. IIRC, the way the mailbox displays in the MMC doesn't change until the mailbox move request has been deleted.

If that's not the case, this command should reset them all from the Exchange powershell:

get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | Where { $_.RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘LegacyMailbox’ } | Set-Mailbox –ApplyMandatoryProperties

For problem #2, can you still open the mailbox, and did you check/resolve the issue(s) that caused the mailbox move to fail?
