exchange 2010 local move request command

I'm having an issue with moving large mailboxes between two exchange 2010 servers on the same network over the wan. Many of these mailboxes are at around 50GB, exchange won't let me move them via GUI. Need to do this via power shell WITH a higher than 50 corrupt message threshold.

I'm trying to move UserA's mailbox from ServerA-DatastoreA to ServerB-DatastoreB.

What you need to do is disable (or remove) the mailbox database quota limits.  Current limit of 2.3 GB on target mailbox database is not going to allow a 27+ GB mailbox to be moved to it.  Remove the quota and run the same command again.  And a PowerShell command will provide no resolution if you don't remove the quotas first.

Thanks, I must have overlooked the quota. I did that and "-BadItemLimit".
