Exchange 2010 Database move will not complete and receives an error
"The WinRM client cannot complete the operation within the time specified" is the error I receive when I was trying to move the "Third.edb" database from Drive "F" to Drive "D". I was able to successfully able to move three other databases. There is definitely enough room on the destination drive. In fact after it fails and I click ok, I have found that it has created a database on Drive "D" with the same size as the source database on "F" and in order to get the old database receiving emails again I had to unmount the source database and then mount it again.
What is causing this problem and how do I get around it?
Moving the database takes time and is offline while the move is taking place. As a workaround, create another database (store) on D drive and just move all the mailboxes. Then remove the store. This should be much less disruptive to your users.
Hope this helps!
