Public Folder Mailbox Move to new Database failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All

    I'm trying to move the Public Folder Mailboxes to a new database. I have 4 PF mailboxes and I ran this command for each mailbox:

    New-MoveRequest -Identity "Mailbox1" -TargetDatabase "PublicFolder Database1" -SuspendWhenReadyToComplete
    New-MoveRequest -Identity "Mailbox2" -TargetDatabase "PublicFolder Database1" -SuspendWhenReadyToComplete
    New-MoveRequest
    -Identity "Mailbox3" -TargetDatabase "PublicFolder Database1" -SuspendWhenReadyToComplete
    New-MoveRequest
    -Identity "Mailbox4" -TargetDatabase "PublicFolder Database1" -SuspendWhenReadyToComplete

    and the result

    Get-Moverequest

    - Mailbox 1 Primary     Failed
    - Mailbox 2 Secondary Auto-suspend
    - Mailbox 3 Secondary Auto-suspend
    - Mailbox 4 Secondary Auto-suspend

    The public folders are still available, but how do I recover the failed PF Mailbox Move on Mailbox 1?

    TooManyBadItemsPermanentException has occurred.

    So you just need to fix that.

     Set-MoveRequest    Mailbox1 -BadItemLimit NNN

    Set NNN to something higher then you originally used. if you didnt set it then see how many items were actually bad and set it higher than that

    Get-MoveRequestStatistics Mailbox1 -IncludeReport |FL *bad*

    after you set it resume

    Resume-MoveRequest Mailbox1

  • This is what I got

    Get-MoveRequestStatistics Mailbox1 -IncludeReport |FL *bad*

    BadItemLimit        : 0
    BadItemsEncountered : 1


    ... is it the folder name with the & could be the cause? 

    Folder property "JXXXXX Food & Beverage Tracker"

    maybe, but regardless, its ok to raise the bad item limit. Try setting to 10 and resume it

  • Done

    All mailbox are Auto-Supended.

    I'll complete the migration at the end of business, when every one is out of the system.

    Many Thanks
