You could probably do something like below.

Get-MailboxDatabase * | Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -ActivateOnServer 'servername' -MountDialOverride 'None' -Confirm:$false -TerminateOnWarning

This will move all mailboxes to the server you specify.

Alternatively if you want to be more specific you can do

Get-MailboxDatabase {databasename} | Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -ActivateOnServer 'servername' -MountDialOverride 'None' -Confirm:$false -TerminateOnWarning

I personally would not do this via a script as you want to make sure that databases are transferred correctly one by one. You also need to take into consideration what version of Exchange you are running. If you are only running standard then you are limited to 5 databases on a single server.

I don't see the need to use a script for this, be patient and wait for the mailboxes to fail-over and monitor this activity.
