Description

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'tony@alpineskihouse.com' -TargetDatabase "DB01" -WhatIf

This example tests a mailbox's readiness to move to the new database DB01 within the same forest and for completeness of the command by using the WhatIf switch. When you use the WhatIf switch, the system performs checks on the mailbox, and if the mailbox isn't ready, you receive an error.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'tony@alpineskihouse.com' -TargetDatabase "DB01"

This example moves Tony Smith's mailbox to the new database DB01.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Get-Mailbox -Database DB01 | New-MoveRequest -TargetDatabase DB02 -BatchName "DB01toDB02"

This example creates a batch move request for all mailboxes on the database DB01 and moves them to the database DB02 with the BatchName parameter value DB01toDB02.

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

Type:DatabaseIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-BadItemLimit

The BadItemLimit parameter specifies the maximum number of bad items that are allowed before the request fails. A bad item is a corrupt item in the source mailbox that can't be copied to the target mailbox. Also included in the bad item limit are missing items. Missing items are items in the source mailbox that can't be found in the target mailbox when the request is ready to complete.

Valid input for this parameter is an integer or the value unlimited. The default value is 0, which means the request will fail if any bad items are detected. If you are OK with leaving a few bad items behind, you can set this parameter to a reasonable value (we recommend 10 or lower) so the request can proceed. If too many bad items are detected, consider using the New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet to attempt to fix corrupted items in the source mailbox, and try the request again.

If you set this value to 51 or higher, you also need to use the AcceptLargeDataLoss switch. Otherwise, the command will fail.

Type:Unlimited
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-BatchName

The BatchName parameter specifies a descriptive name for moving a batch of mailboxes. You can then use the name in the BatchName parameter as a search string when you use the Get-MoveRequest cmdlet.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-CheckInitialProvisioningSetting

The CheckInitialProvisioningSetting switch specifies that the move request checks the IsExcludedFromProvisioning setting on the target database when you don't specify a target database for the move. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

The IsExcludedFromProvisioning setting allows the database to be excluded from provisioning new mailboxes.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-CompleteAfter

The CompleteAfter parameter specifies a delay before the request is completed. The request is started, but not completed until the date/time you specify with this parameter.

Use the short date format that's defined in the Regional Options settings on the computer where you're running the command. For example, if the computer is configured to use the short date format mm/dd/yyyy, enter 09/01/2015 to specify September 1, 2015. You can enter the date only, or you can enter the date and time of day. If you enter the date and time of day, enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example, "09/01/2015 5:00 PM".

In Exchange Online, if you specify a date/time value without a time zone, the value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

To specify a date/time value for this parameter, use either of the following options:

  • Specify the date/time value in UTC: For example, "2016-05-06 14:30:00z".

  • Specify the date/time value as a formula that converts the date/time in your local time zone to UTC: For example, (Get-Date "5/6/2016 9:30 AM").ToUniversalTime(). For more information, see Get-Date (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113313).

Type:DateTime
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-CompletedRequestAgeLimit

The CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter specifies how long the request will be kept after it has completed before being automatically removed. The default CompletedRequestAgeLimit parameter value is 30 days.

Type:Unlimited
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-ForceOffline

The ForceOfflineswitch forces the mailbox move to be performed in offline mode. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

Moving a mailbox in offline mode means the user will have no access to email during the mailbox move.

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-IncrementalSyncInterval

The IncrementalSyncInterval parameter specifies the wait time between incremental syncs. This parameter is used together with the CompleteAfter parameter to create a move request that will do periodic incremental syncs after the initial sync is complete.

To specify a value, enter it as a time span: dd.hh:mm:ss where dd = days, hh = hours, mm = minutes, and ss = seconds.

Valid values are from 00:00:00 to 120.00:00:00 (120 days). The default value is 24 hours.

Type:TimeSpan
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

A large item is a message in the source mailbox that exceeds the maximum message size that's allowed in the target mailbox. If the target mailbox doesn't have a specifically configured maximum message size value, the organization-wide value is used.

For more information about maximum message size values, see the following topics:

Valid input for this parameter is an integer or the value unlimited. The default value is 0, which means the request will fail if any large items are detected. If you are OK with leaving a few large items behind, you can set this parameter to a reasonable value (we recommend 10 or lower) so the request can proceed.

If you set this value to 51 or higher, you also need to use the AcceptLargeDataLoss switch. Otherwise, the command will fail.

You can enter the date only, or you can enter the date and time of day. If you enter the date and time of day, enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example, "09/01/2015 5:00 PM".

In Exchange Online, if you specify a date/time value without a time zone, the value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

To specify a date/time value for this parameter, use either of the following options:

  • Specify the date/time value in UTC: For example, "2016-05-06 14:30:00z".

  • Specify the date/time value as a formula that converts the date/time in your local time zone to UTC: For example, (Get-Date "5/6/2016 9:30 AM").ToUniversalTime(). For more information, see Get-Date (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113313).
