Remove-MailboxExportRequest RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a bulk export for mailboxes (Exchange 2010 SP1)

    my script uses a CSV file based on Alias to export each pst. 

    AFter they are complete - do I have to run REMOVE-MailboxExportRequest on each mailbox? IS it required I remove this request? Not clear why it has to be explicitly removed after the requested export is complete. 

    Thanks,

    SJ

  • Depends, If you only have one source server you can get by with setting MaxActiveMovesPerSourceServer = 2

    I'm assuming your script will be using multiple source servers, source databases and target servers and target databases.

  • We have multiple stores/DB and a single server so I changed the Server "50" => "2"

    restarted Replication services and it is working perfectly. Thanks for answering my questions.

  • You don't necessarily need to remove it, however, you must clear the move request to remove the InTransit flag from the mailbox. You won't be able to move the mailbox again until you clear the previous move request.

    You can view them in the EMC gui as well under recipient config, move requests.

  • James

    What do you mean move/ In transit? I am just exporting a copy of a mailbox to a pst.

  • Sorry for just export requests you don't need to clear it,  as long as the move has completed sucessfully you can run another export request on the mailbox to the same pst as well. It's just more of a "maintenance" thing than a functional thing. The only time it's really a functional thing is if you wanted to cancel the a pending move to unlock the exist pst in use.

  • Thanks James. One thing I noticed was when running concurrent exports performance can become an issue on the CAS server. 

    In an effort to throttle this I am looking at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff963524.aspx

    By chance, if I want to use a list of 30 mailboxes to export to PST, but want to only run 2 at a time - would I change the setting 

    MaxActiveMovesPerSourceMDB or

    MaxActiveMovesPerSourceServer or

    MaxTotalMovesPerMRS
