I need to move my existing exchange 2010 server to another server. I had already installed OS and Exchange 2010 in the new server.

How can I move the exchange mailboxes and databases to the new server.

You need to consider about the certificate, public IP NAT and adding new Exchange in the same organization. if it is done, then you can select from Recipient Configuration, select the users, right click and Move Request.

Hi,
I hope you already have Exchange2010 SP3 installed if not please download SP3 (SP1 and SP2 are out of support). Install RU 14 after that.

Configure CAS array and point your databases to the CAS array. Create an A record points which points to the new CAS server. (Optional but recommened by MS).

Change your NAT to the new server in Firewall/Router.

Shutdown the old exchange server for couple of days and monitor. If all working fine decommission the old server.

How do I move Exchange Server to a new server:
http://windowsitpro.com/windows/how-do-i-move-exchange-server-new-server

With all things being equal Database portability is the fastest way to do it but mailboxes will be offline during the move. The sequence of tasks that need to take place:

- Dismount mailbox database on old server then Run eseutil /MH NAME.edb to confirm you have a clean shutdown.
- Create new mailbox store on New Exchange server and mount it, and Dismount the new mailbox store
- Then manually copy the old database to the new mailbox store database location (make sure it is the same name). Then Run the following command on new server Set-MailboxDatabase DBNAME -AllowFileRestore:$true
- Delete the transaction log files and checkpoint files for that database.
- Mount the store.
- Finally modify user account settings so user access points to the new mailbox server
    Get-Mailbox -Database OLD_DB | where {$_ObjectClass -NotMatch
    '(SystemAttendantMailbox|ExOleDbSystemMailbox)'} | Set-Mailbox -Database NEW_DB

Get in detailed here - Move a mailbox database using database portability

You may also get help from this solution to move the exchange mailboxes and databases to the new server. Here is another article for moving an Exchange Mailbox Database to Another Server or Storage Group: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997006(v=exchg.65).aspx
