Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MoveRequestIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the mailbox or mail user. You can use the following values:

  • GUID
  • Distinguished name (DN)
  • Domain\Account
  • User principal name (UPN)
  • Legacy Exchange DN
  • SMTP address
  • Alias

You can't use this parameter in conjunction with the MailboxGuid or MoveRequestQueue parameters.

MailboxGuid

Required

System.Nullable

The MailboxGuid parameter specifies the GUID of the mailbox for which you want to remove the move request. If you specify the MailboxGuid parameter, you must also specify the MoveRequestQueue parameter.

You can't use this parameter in conjunction with the Identity parameter.

MoveRequestQueue

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

The MoveRequestQueue parameter specifies the database on which the move request is queued. You can use the following values:

  • GUID of the database
  • Database name
  • Server name\database name

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

The MoveRequestQueue parameter is for debugging purposes only.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox move" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
