I didn't get the last one correctly, we are on exchange 2016 environment.

so let us say if I want to move user 1 which is on db1 database  on mbxserver1  and want to move

to db2 database on mbxserver2 , can you please correct below command

does it look like this

New-MoveRequest "<DescriptiveName>"] -Identity <user1> [<-ArchiveOnly | -PrimaryOnly>] [-TargetDatabase <db2>] [-ArchiveTargetDatabase<DatabaseIdentity>] [-Priority <PriorityValue>] [-BadItemLimit <Value>] [-AcceptLargeDataLoss] 

is this correct command?

last question, thank you for above
we have  some mailbox databases like db1.. db80 spread across 4 exchange servers. ( mbx1, mbx2, mbx3, mbx4)
I need to failover  all the databases from mbx1 and mbx2 to mbx3 and mbx4
we are doing failover exercise.
all 4 servers are in same dag01 , same active directory site.
On  mbx1 I if I use move-activemailboxdatabase - server  mbx2, will it move all the databases ?

so this command if I run on mbx1, it moves all db's on mbx1 to other mbx server?

or should I put the target server instead?

and so what happens with mailboxes homed which are on active mailbox database that will also get moved?

we want to sure mbx1 is not doing anything as we want to put that  server in maint. mode during switch over
