New-PublicFolderMoveRequest

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2015-01-26

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the New-PublicFolderMoveRequest cmdlet to begin the process of moving public folder contents between public folder mailboxes. Moving public folders only moves the physical contents of the public folder; it doesn't change the logical hierarchy. When the move request is completed, you must run the Remove-PublicFolderMoveRequest cmdlet to remove the request or wait until the time specified in the CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter has passed. The request must be removed before you can run another move request.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

New-PublicFolderMoveRequest -Folders <PublicFolderIdParameter[]> -TargetMailbox <MailboxIdParameter> [-AcceptLargeDataLoss <SwitchParameter>] [-AllowLargeItems <SwitchParameter>] [-BadItemLimit <Unlimited>] [-CompletedRequestAgeLimit <Unlimited>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-InternalFlags <InternalMrsFlag[]>] [-LargeItemLimit <Unlimited>] [-Name <String>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-Priority <Lowest | Lower | Low | Normal | High | Higher | Highest | Emergency>] [-Suspend <SwitchParameter>] [-SuspendComment <String>] [-SuspendWhenReadyToComplete <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WorkloadType <None | Local | Onboarding | Offboarding | TenantUpgrade | LoadBalancing | Emergency | RemotePstIngestion | SyncAggregation | RemotePstExport>]

This example begins the move request for the public folder \CustomerEngagements from public folder mailbox DeveloperReports to DeveloperReports01.

New-PublicFolderMoveRequest -Folders \DeveloperReports\CustomerEngagements -TargetMailbox DeveloperReports01

This example begins the move request for public folders under the \Dev public folder branch to the target public folder mailbox DeveloperReports01.

NoteNote:
You can also move a branch of public folders by using the Move-PublicFolderBranch.ps1 script.
New-PublicFolderMoveRequest -Folders \Dev\CustomerEngagements,\Dev\RequestsforChange,\Dev\Usability -TargetMailbox DeveloperReports01

The New-PublicFolderMoveRequest cmdlet moves public folders from a source public folder mailbox to a target public folder mailbox. To move the public folder mailbox to another mailbox database, use the New-MoveRequest cmdlet. To ensure that this folder is already in the target public folder mailbox, run the Update-PublicFolderMailbox cmdlet against the target public folder mailbox. You can only perform one move request at a time. You can also move public folders by using the Move-PublicFolderBranch.ps1 script.

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 "Public folders" entry in the Sharing and collaboration permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Folders

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.PublicFolderIdParameter[]

The Folders parameter specifies the public folders that you want to move. If the public folder has child public folders, child public folders won't be moved unless you explicitly state them in the command. You can move multiple public folders by separating them with a comma, for example, \Dev\CustomerEngagements,\Dev\RequestsforChange,\Dev\Usability.

TargetMailbox

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The TargetMailbox parameter specifies the target public folder mailbox that you want to move the public folders to. This parameter accepts the following:

  • Alias

  • Canonical DN

  • Display name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • GUID

  • ImmutableId

  • SMTP address

  • User principal name (UPN)

AcceptLargeDataLoss

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AcceptLargeDataLoss switch specifies the request should continue even if a large number of items in the source mailbox can't be copied to the target mailbox. You need to use this switch if you set either the BadItemLimit or LargeItemLimit parameters to a value of 51 or higher. Otherwise, the command will fail.

AllowLargeItems

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AllowLargeItems parameter specifies that you can move large items only when large items are encountered. Large items are email messages with a maximum of 1,023 attachments.

BadItemLimit

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The BadItemLimit parameter specifies the maximum number of bad items that are allowed before the request fails. A bad item is a corrupt item in the source mailbox that can't be copied to the target mailbox. Also included in the bad item limit are missing items. Missing items are items in the source mailbox that can't be found in the target mailbox when the request is ready to complete.

Valid input for this parameter is an integer or the value unlimited. The default value is 0, which means the request will fail if any bad items are detected. If you are OK with leaving a few bad items behind, you can set this parameter to a reasonable value (we recommend 10 or lower) so the request can proceed. If too many bad items are detected, consider using the New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to attempt to fix corrupted items in the source mailbox, and try the request again.

NoteNote:
If you set this value to 51 or higher, you also need to use the AcceptLargeDataLoss switch. Otherwise, the command will fail.

CompletedRequestAgeLimit

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter specifies how long the request will be 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 causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

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.

InternalFlags

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.InternalMrsFlag[]

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 maximum number of large items that are allowed before the request fails. A large item is a message in the source mailbox that exceeds the maximum message size that's allowed in the target mailbox. If the target mailbox doesn't have a specifically configured maximum message size value, the organization-wide value is used.

For more information about maximum message size values, see the following topics:

Valid input for this parameter is an integer or the value unlimited. The default value is 0, which means the request will fail if any large items are detected. If you are OK with leaving a few large items behind, you can set this parameter to a reasonable value (we recommend 10 or lower) so the request can proceed.

NoteNote:
If you set this value to 51 or higher, you also need to use the AcceptLargeDataLoss switch. Otherwise, the command will fail.

Name

Optional

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the name of the public folder move request. If you don't specify a name, the default name is PublicFolderMove.

Organization

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

Priority

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService.RequestPriority

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 accepts the following:

  • Lowest

  • Lower

  • Low

  • Normal

  • High

  • Higher

  • Highest

  • Emergency

Suspend

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Suspend switch specifies whether to suspend the request. If you use this switch, the request is queued, but the request won't reach the status of InProgress until you resume the request with the relevant resume cmdlet. You don't have to specify a value with this switch.

SuspendComment

Optional

System.String

The SuspendComment parameter specifies a description about why the request was suspended. You can only use this parameter if you specify the Suspend parameter.

SuspendWhenReadyToComplete

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The SuspendWhenReadyToComplete switch specifies whether to suspend the request before it reaches the status of CompletionInProgress. After the move is suspended, it has a status of AutoSuspended. You can then manually complete the move by using the Resume-PublicFolderMoveRequest 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.

WorkloadType

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService.RequestWorkloadType

The WorkloadType parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.
