Exchange 2010 to 2016 Mailbox Migration

I'm moving mailboxes from exchange 2010 to 2016. environment is co-existence mode. I moved a single mailbox with no issues and cut it over to 2016. I then batch moved 4 mailboxes and set then to no complete at 95% so that I can complete the batch when ready.  this is also fine. while those are synced at 95% I'm attempting to to move another single mailbox and it started moving but then stalled at 20% for about an hour with a status of "stalled due to target_processor". resources are fine and so is CPU. I looked at the migration report and there are no failures or errors and all processes, initializations, and prep for the migration is fine. No errors in the eventlogs either about this. Has anyone seen this? I haven't changed any throttling or anything.

I should also mention that after the migration didn't progress after about an hour and the status never changed, I decided to stop the migration and then deleted the request. The move started fine me but then it stopped with that status message for about an hour and that's when I open this ticket with experts exchange. it migrated about 150MB and 4300 items before the message. mailbox is 5GB

The mailbox won't even move to a different 2010 database. it doesn't fail or give errors. I will attempt to export to pay and then recreate the mailbox.
There's a mailbox move log.
Execute the following command to view it.
Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity | Format-List

Open in new window

or export it to a file.
Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity -IncludeReport | Export-CSV C:\temp\movembx.csv

Open in new window

See here for more details.

I after failing to even successfully migrate the mailbox to another Exchange 2010 DB, i decided to export the mailbox to a pst, disable the mailbox, recreate the mailbox in Exchange 2016, and imported the mail to the new mailbox. Before importing the mail i attempted to connect to the pst via outlook and there was issues so I had to run a pst repair in order to access the pst and there was alot of issues with it. After the repair I imported the mail to the new mailbox.
