Complete a Move Request

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can complete a move request that has been suspended by using the Exchange Management Console (EMC) or the Resume-MoveRequest cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell.

Looking for other management tasks related to move requests? Check out Managing Move Requests.

Before you can complete a move request, it must have a move request status of Suspended. For more information, see Suspend Move Requests.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox moves" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Recipient Configuration > Move Requests.
  2. In the result pane, select one or more mailboxes that have move request statuses of Suspended or Automatically Suspended.
  3. In the action pane, click Complete Move Request.
  4. On the Complete Move Request page, view the mailboxes that you selected in the result pane. If you want to add or remove mailboxes, click Cancel, and then make the changes in the result pane.
  5. Click Complete to resume the move request.
  6. On the Completion page, review the following, and then click Finish to close the wizard:
    • A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully.
    • A status of Failed indicates that the task wasn't completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox moves" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example completes the move request for Tony Smith's mailbox.
