Hi Experts,

I have 2 Exchange servers in the same domain, one is Exchange 2007 and the other one is Exchange 2013.

In Exchange 2013, I initiate a mailbox move from the 2007 server but it has been stuck with the status "Syncing" for over 48 hours.

So in the Exchange powershell, i ran the following command

Here is the result

Can anybody shed more light on this error and what i can do to resolve it?

Heavy load on the server it seems.  Suspend the move and start off hours.

**Always initiate the powershell command  from the new server **

So I tried doing the mailbox move during off hours and again, the move did not complete successfully so I bit the bullet and got MS involved.

They solved it by changing the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange ResourceHealth\MRS from 0 to 1 and restarting the Mailbox Replication service.
