Set-MoveRequest

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-04-02

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

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>] [-ArchiveTargetDatabase <DatabaseIdParameter>] [-BadItemLimit <Unlimited>] [-BatchName <String>] [-CompleteAfter <DateTime>] [-CompletedRequestAgeLimit <Unlimited>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IgnoreRuleLimitErrors <$true | $false>] [-IncrementalSyncInterval <TimeSpan>] [-InternalFlags <InternalMrsFlag[]>] [-LargeItemLimit <Unlimited>] [-PreventCompletion <$true | $false>] [-Priority <Lowest | Lower | Low | Normal | High | Higher | Highest | Emergency>] [-Protect <$true | $false>] [-RemoteCredential <PSCredential>] [-RemoteGlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-RemoteHostName <Fqdn>] [-SkipMoving <SkippableMoveComponent[]>] [-StartAfter <DateTime>] [-SuspendWhenReadyToComplete <$true | $false>] [-TargetDatabase <DatabaseIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example changes the move request for Ayla to accept up to five corrupt mailbox items.

Set-MoveRequest -Identity Ayla@humongousinsurance.com -BadItemLimit 5

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 Recipients 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.

ArchiveTargetDatabase

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The ArchiveTargetDatabase parameter specifies the Exchange target database to which you're moving the personal archive. You can use this parameter to change the target database only if the move request has a MoveStatus value of Queued.

You can use the following values to specify the target database:

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

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.

CompleteAfter

Optional

System.DateTime

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

CompletedRequestAgeLimit

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter specifies how long the request is kept after it has completed before being automatically removed. The default CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter value is 30 days.

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

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

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.

IncrementalSyncInterval

Optional

System.TimeSpan

The IncrementalSyncInterval parameter specifies the wait time between incremental syncs. This parameter is used together with the StartAfter and CompleteAfter parameters to create a move request that will do periodic incremental syncs after the initial sync is complete.

InternalFlags

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.InternalMrsFlag[]

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The InternalFlags parameter specifies the optional steps in the request. This parameter is used primarily for debugging purposes.

LargeItemLimit

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The LargeItemLimit parameter specifies the number of large items to skip if the request encounters such items in the mailbox. Use 0 to not skip any large items. If any number above 50 is specified, the AcceptLargeDataLoss parameter must also be specified. The default value is 0. We recommend that you use the default value of 0 and increase the LargeItemLimit parameter value only when large items are encountered.

PreventCompletion

Optional

System.Boolean

The PreventCompletion parameter specifies that this cmdlet initializes, but isn't completed. This parameter accepts $true or $false. The default value is $false. If you specify $true, you have to run the Resume-MoveRequest cmdlet to complete the move request.

Priority

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService.RequestPriority

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The Priority parameter specifies the order in which this request should be processed in the request queue. Requests are processed in order, based on server health, status, priority, and last update time.

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 of the 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.

SkipMoving

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.SkippableMoveComponent[]

The SkipMoving parameter allows certain stages of a mailbox move to be skipped for debugging purposes. Do not use this parameter unless directed to do so by a support professional or specific documentation.

StartAfter

Optional

System.DateTime

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

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.

TargetDatabase

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The TargetDatabase parameter specifies the identity of the database that you're moving the mailbox to. You can use this parameter to change the target database only if the move request has a MoveStatus value of Queued.

You can use the following values:

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

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.
