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 --------------------------

Remove-PublicFolderMailboxMigrationRequest -Identity \PublicFolderMailboxMigrationac6d9eb4-ee49-405f-b90d-04e9a258bd7e

This example removes the specified public folder mailbox migration request.

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

Get-PublicFolderMailboxMigrationRequest | ?{$_.TargetMailbox -eq $null}

This example returns public folder mailbox migration requests that don't have a target mailbox. To remove these orphaned migration requests, add " | Remove-PublicFolderMailboxMigrationRequest" to the end of the command.

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

Get-PublicFolderMailboxMigrationRequest | group TargetMailbox |?{$_.Count -gt 1}

This example returns duplicate public folder migration requests (requests created for the same target mailbox). If the command returns no results, then there are no duplicate migration requests.

A sample script is provided here: (https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Remove-Duplicate-public-055f0e5e) to detect duplicate or orphaned public folder mailbox migration requests and also remove them.

Parameters

-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.

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the public folder mailbox migration request that you want to remove. This value uses the syntax \PublicFolderMailboxMigration<GUID> (for example, \PublicFolderMailboxMigrationac6d9eb4-ee49-405f-b90d-04e9a258bd7e).

You can't use this parameter with the RequestGuid or RequestQueue parameters.
