  1. If the move request didn't complete, view the Move Request Statistics. For more information, see the section "Use the Shell to view the status of an in-progress move request" in View Move Request Properties.
  2. If the move request completed with errors, view the move report. For more information, see the section "Use the Shell to view a completed move request report" in View Move Request Properties.
  3. View the Event log on the Client Access server running the instance of the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service that's processing the failed move request.
  4. Step 4 - If you still can't determine the problem, use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to increase the diagnostic logging levels on the Client Access server for the Mailbox Move and Service categories of the MSExchange Mailbox Replication service. Then resume the failed move request. For details about how to modify the diagnostic logging level, see Manage Diagnostic Logging Levels.

If you're experiencing errors when moving mailboxes across forests, it's possible that the target forest hasn't been properly prepared. For details, see Prepare Mailboxes for Cross-Forest Move Requests.

The move request fails because the mailbox has more corrupted items than the move request is configured to skip.

The move request fails, and the Get-MoveRequestStatistics cmdlet returns the following error:

Failure code Message

-2147467259

Error: This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items that were specified for this move request.

The following Event log entry appears on the Client Access server on which the move request was initiated:

Description

Mailbox move for 'fabrikam.com/Users/TonySmith' (de278a9f-33eb-49f9-950a-070db3323715) has failed.

Error code: -2147467259

This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items that were specified for this move request.

  1. Use the Set-MoveRequest cmdlet to increase the BadItemLimit threshold. For details, see Configure Move Request Properties.
  2. Resume the failed move request. For details, see Complete a Move Request.

The move request fails when you attempt to move a mailbox from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2003 because the size of the rules in the Exchange 2010 mailbox exceeds the size of the rules that's allowed in Exchange 2003 (32 KB).

When you attempt to move the mailbox, you receive an error similar to the following:

Mailbox 'fabrikam.com/Users/tonysmith' could not be moved because rules in source mailbox's inbox folder are larger than 32KB. Please use parameter -IgnoreRuleLimitErrors to skip copying rules.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (mbx2:MailboxOrMailUserIdParameter) [New-MoveRequest], RecipientTaskExc   eption    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : BB833F3D,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest

  1. Run the Set-MoveRequest cmdlet with the IgnoreRuleLimitErrors parameter. For details, see Configure Move Request Properties.
  2. Resume the move request. For details, see Complete a Move Request.
Dd638094.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
End users will need to re-create their rules.

The recoverable items quota for the mailbox being moved has exceeded the target quota. This error occurs when you're moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010.

When you try to move the mailbox, you receive an error similar to the following:

Mailbox dumpster size 713 MB (747,659,085 bytes) exceeds target quota 500 MB (524,288,000 bytes).
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (xxxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx:MailboxOrMailUserIdParameter) [New-MoveRequest], RecipientTaskException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 93F29192,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest

Move requests don't support moving an Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 dumpster to Exchange 2010. However, the move request will still compare the dumpster size between the two product versions. To fix this issue, perform the following steps.

  1. Increase the recoverable items quota for the target mailbox database by using the Set-MailboxDatabase cmdlet with the RecoverableItemsQuota parameter. For details, see Configure Single Item Recovery.
  2. Resume the failed move request. For details, see Complete a Move Request.
  3. When the move request is complete, return the recoverable items quota to its original size.

While the move was in progress, the source or target mailbox database went offline. By default, the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service (MRS) will attempt to reconnect with the offline database for 30 minutes. If the database doesn't come online within that time, the move will fail. For more information about how to change the MRS connection rate, see Understanding Move Requests.

The move request fails, and when you run the Get-MoveRequestStatistics cmdlet, you receive the following error:

Failure code Message

-2147467259

Error: MapiExceptionMdbOffline: Unable to open entry ID. (hr=0x80004005, ec=1142)

Also, the Client Access server that was processing the move request will log an event similar to the following:

Mailbox move for 'fabrikam.com/Users/TonySmith' (8dfd4b3b-8147-4e1b-b86f-5d00799abbf3) has failed.

Error code: -2147467259

MapiExceptionMdbOffline: Unable to open entry ID. (hr=0x80004005, ec=1142)

Diagnostic context:

  1. Mount the mailbox database. For details, see Mount a Database.
  2. Resume the move request. For details, see Complete a Move Request.

When the target database is a replicated database in a database availability group (DAG), MRS regularly checks the replication health of the target database. High availability infrastructure verifies the current replication health against the configured throttling behavior for high availability mailbox moves (as specified by the DataMoveReplicationConstraint parameter) for the target database. Depending on the results, MRS will either continue with the move or wait. If the target database isn't healthy for 30 minutes, MRS will fail. For details about how to change the MRS connection rate, see Understanding Move Requests.

The move request fails when you run the Get-MoveRequestStatistics cmdlet, and the output file returns an error similar to the following:

Failure Code Message

-2147220223

  1. Start the MRSProxy service on all Client Access servers in the source forest. For details, see Start the MRSProxy Service on a Remote Client Access Server.
  2. Resume the failed move request. For details, see Complete a Move Request.

The move request completes, but has the status of Completed With Warning. You are unable to clear the move request because the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication (MSExchangeMailboxReplication) service couldn't reset the InTransit flag from the destination mailbox. If this flag isn't removed, end users won't be able to log on to their mailboxes.

When you run the Get-MoveRequestStatistics with the IncludeMoveHistory parameter, the move report returns an error similar to the following:

Failed to reset the destination mailbox after the move.
When you run Test-MAPIConnectivity for this mailbox, it will fail with the following error:
Error      : [Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.MailboxInTransitException]: Cannot open mailbox /o=microsoft/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=MBX01/cn=Microsoft System Attendant.
