Set-MoveRequest

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2012-12-11

Use the Set-MoveRequest cmdlet to change move request options after the move request has been created. You can use the Set-MoveRequest cmdlet to recover from failed move requests.

Set-MoveRequest -Identity <MoveRequestIdParameter> [-AcceptLargeDataLoss <SwitchParameter>] [-BadItemLimit <Unlimited>] [-BatchName <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IgnoreRuleLimitErrors <$true | $false>] [-Priority <Normal | High>] [-Protect <$true | $false>] [-RemoteCredential <PSCredential>] [-RemoteGlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-RemoteHostName <Fqdn>] [-SuspendWhenReadyToComplete <$true | $false>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

You can pipeline the Set-MoveRequest cmdlet from the Get-MoveRequestStatistics, Get-MoveRequest, or Get-Mailbox cmdlets.

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 moves" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

 

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)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SMTP address

  • Alias

AcceptLargeDataLoss

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AcceptLargeDataLoss parameter specifies that a large amount of data loss is acceptable if the BadItemLimit is set to 51 or higher. Items are considered corrupted if the item can't be read from the source database or can't be written to the target database. Corrupted items won't be available in the destination mailbox or .pst file.

BadItemLimit

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The BadItemLimit parameter specifies the number of bad items to skip if the request encounters corruption in the mailbox. Use 0 to not skip bad items. The valid input range for this parameter is from 0 through 2147483647. The default value is 0. We recommend that you keep the default value 0 and only change the BadItemLimit parameter value if the request fails.

noteNote:
If you set the BadItemLimit parameter to more than 50, the command fails, and you receive a warning stating: "Please confirm your intention to accept a large amount of data loss by specifying AcceptLargeDataLoss." If you receive this warning, you need to run the command again, this time using the AcceptLargeDataLoss parameter. No further warnings appear, and any corrupted items aren't available after the process is complete.

BatchName

Optional

System.String

The BatchName parameter specifies a different name for a batch.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.

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.

IgnoreRuleLimitErrors

Optional

System.Boolean

The IgnoreRuleLimitErrors parameter specifies that the command won't move the user's rules to the target server running Microsoft Exchange.

Priority

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService.RequestPriority

The Priority parameter specifies the position in the request queue in which to put this request for processing. Requests are processed in order, based on server health, status, priority, and last update time.

Protect

Optional

System.Boolean

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

RemoteCredential

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

The RemoteCredential parameter specifies an administrator who has permission to perform the mailbox move, for example, Administrator@ humongousinsurance.com.

This parameter requires the creation and passing of a credential object. This credential object is created by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, see Get-Credential.

RemoteGlobalCatalog

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The RemoteGlobalCatalog parameter specifies the FQDN global catalog server for the remote forest.

RemoteHostName

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The RemoteHostName parameter specifies the FQDN of the cross-forest organization from which you're moving the mailbox.

SuspendWhenReadyToComplete

Optional

System.Boolean

The SuspendWhenReadyToComplete parameter specifies whether to suspend the move request before it reaches the status of CompletionInProgress. The move request then has a status of AutoSuspended. You can manually complete the move by using the Resume-MoveRequest command.

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.
