Clear or Remove Move Requests

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

When a move request reaches a status of Completed or Completed with warning, you must clear the move request to remove the InTransit flag from the mailbox. You won't be able to move the mailbox again until you clear the previous move request. To learn more about the Completed with warning status, see Troubleshooting Mailbox Moves.

In addition, you can remove a move request that's in progress. When you remove a move request in progress, mailbox replication stops, and the replica is deleted from the target database. If you remove the move request and later decide to move the mailbox, you must start the move request process at the beginning.

noteNote:
To view all move requests in a multiple-domain environment in the Exchange Management Console, the recipient scope needs to be modified to view the entire forest. For more information, see Change the Recipient Scope.
