How to move an Exchange 2010 Mailbox database to another Exchange 2010 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently added another Exchange 2010 server to my network.  My goal is to decomission the old server and replace it with a new one.  I have my new Exchange 2010 server in place and I now want to move all of my mailboxes tothe new server.  My mailbox database a little over 200 gigabytes in size.  I tried the request move for each mail box but it takes a very long time.   The owner of the company has a very large mail box and I can't afford to lose any of his data or I may lost my job.  I asked me to archive some mail but he's the owner and dosn't want. 

    I need my job.

    How can I or Can I just move the entire mailbox database from the old server to the new server.  Both servers are Exchange 2010 running on Windows 2008 R2.  I just realize that there is a service pack available will that help make this process easier?  After the move I plan to decomission the old server.
