How to move mailbox back from 2010 to 2007? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hallo, we have SBS 2008 domain network with exchange 2007 and because of trying new things I set up an Exchnage server on a virtual machine inside our network. So far so good. Then, after some experiments I moved one mailbox to the new 2010 exchange server. ok. But - how should I return it if I decide to remove this new 2010 server? There is no more the "move" command in 2010 server and there is an icon with small green arrow at the mailbox name...

    Step by step please... thanks!

  • The command move-mailbox has been replaced with new-moverequest in Exchange 2010.
    To move the mailbox back to 2007, specify the targetdatabase.

    This example moves Tony Smith's mailbox to database DB01.
    New-MoveRequest -Identity 'tony@alpineskihouse.com' -TargetDatabase "DB01"

    Moverequests has to be removed/cleared, before you will be able to move the mailbox again. Examples:
    Remove-moverequest NAME (will remove a particular moverequest)
    Get-Moverequest | remove-moverequest (will remove all moverequests)

    You can also use "Clear Move Request" in EMC - Recipient Configuration|Move Request

  • Hi Jan02589,

    Moving mailboxes from Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to Exchange Server 2007? Consider the following:

    • The move process is performed offline, and end-users won't be able to access their mailboxes during the move.
    • You can't move mailboxes to or from servers running Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or earlier. The target database must be on a server running Exchange 2007 SP2 or later.
    • Perform the move from an Exchange 2010 server by using the move request cmdlets in the Exchange Management Shell. You can't use the Move-Mailbox cmdlets in Exchange 2007 to move the mailboxes.
    • If the mailbox that you're moving has an archive mailbox associated with it, you must disable the archive before moving the mailbox.
    • If you’re moving a mailbox to Exchange 2007, you must disable single-item recovery and purge the Recoverable Items folder. For details, see Clean Up the Recoverable Items Folder.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
