  • Hello,

    using powershell how do I move a database from one server to another as when I searched for new-moverequest I could only find how to move a mailbox but not a database.

  • Hello

    I would suggest you to create new database on another server and move mailboxes, also you will not have any downtime when you move mailboxes hence moving entire database will needs downtime.

    Hence Moving entire mailbox databases to accomplish normal administrative tasks is not recommended. The Move Mailbox task is the recommended method for transferring mailboxes to different databases.

    You can refer this technet article.



    Thanks Mhussain
