Unable to Remove Move Request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Something went wrong when I tried to move my mailbox from an Exchange 2003 server to our new Exchange 2010 server.  I've moved my mailbox back and forth before.  I used EMC to do the move request. The last time I tried to see the move progress it gave me this error:


    Failed to communicate with the mailbox database. It was running the command "Get-MoveRequestStatistics -Identity 'domain.com/Accounts/myname''.


    I believe the problem had to do with an antivirus application that I added to this server since the last time I moved my mailbox.  I disabled the AV app and was able to see movement of the mailbox for a while.  Then it failed again with the same error.

    In EMC the request still shows as still 'moving'.  When I use EMC to try and remove the move request I get this error:


    Failed to communicate with the mailbox database.

    When I use EMS to try and remove the move request I get this error:


    Failed to communicate with the mailbox database.

    + CategoryInfo : ResourceUnavailable: <0:Int32> [Remove-MoveRequest], StoragePermanentException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AFCA4D7A,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.RemoveMoveRequest


    I've rebooted both Exchange servers. I made sure all AV app services are still disabled. 

    I am able to still access my mailbox on old Exchange 2003 server via Outlook 2007.

    I still need to move my mailbox. What do I need to do to get this move request removed so I can start over?

  • 1. Open ADSIEDIT and navigate to the OU where your broken user account is stored.
    2. Locate the user account, right-click on it and then choose "Properties".
    3. Click on the "Filter" button and make sure "Show only attributes that have values" is checked.
    4. Scroll down the attributes and search for an entry called "msExchMailboxMoveRemoteHostName".
    5. Click on the "Edit" button.
    6. Click on the "Clear" button.
    7. Click the "OK" button.
