2013 Exchange database migration empty

I recently migrated 10 mailboxes from 1 DB to the another and they completed successfully but after the move the migration tab in EAC didn't work. It would generate an error when I clicked on it. I went to view the DBs and found that one had dismounted and wouldn't mount. I ended up repairing the DB and now I'm able to mount it and also able to open the Migration tab again BUT when I attempt a mailbox migration it doesn't queue it. I click on the Migration tab in EAC and it's empty. No errors.

you have to clear all the move requests. See if there are any by using the following.

Get-MoveRequestStatistics -MoveRequestQueue <database>  

Then remove them using:

Remove-MoveRequest

run this command in exchange management shell to check if anything is still lingering

Get-MoveRequest | where {$_.status -ne ”Completed”} | Get-MoveRequestStatistics

First, you must make sure that the mailbox in DB1, not in DB2.

Second, you can run the following command to check additional information about the mailbox move:

Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity UserName -IncludeReport |Export-CSV C:\MRStats.csv

As a workaround, run Get-MigrationBatch -Identity "BatchJobName" | fl command and see if it pointed you directly on the cause.

Also have a look at below earlier threads might helps you to get in more detailed:

what ended up fixing this problem was recreating the migration mailbox.
