New-MoveRequest makes Outlook 2010 disconnect? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I was under the impression that when running a move-request users that are runnning outlook 2010 wont be affected and disconnected since they are connected to the CAS servers?

    I just tried to move my mailbox to DB02 and my Outlook were disconnected.

    # New-MoveRequest username -TargetDatabase DB02

  • Hi

    AFAIK it should be "online" but... when you have moved the mailbox, CAS needs to switch to the new DB and that could cause a disconnection

    This is theory, and if the users are using offline cache mode it shouldn't appear

     

    What Outlook version did you use and what mode?

  • ^--- this. During the move they should remain online and able to access the mailbox, but at the very end when Exchange completes the move they'll have to restart.

  • You're still going to see a disconnect when the move is completed followed by a prompt to restart Outlook.
