I'm moving mailboxes from one Ex 2010 server to another. Several have moved

fine, but the one I'm on now seems to be "stuck". Mailbox size is 1.17 GB.

Get-MoveRequestStatistics shows 95% completion with a status of

CompletionInProgress. Unfortunately, it has shown this status for 24 hours

now. Suspend-MoveRequest fails because "The completion process has begun...",

and of course I can't Remove-MoveRequest. I have restarted both servers with

no change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Anything fired off in the event logs regarding this? Running RU2?

Yes, since I first posted I've gathered more information. In the event log

there are many error entries. Some examples:

Performance counter updating error. Counter name is Total Number of Failed

PIN Reset Requests, category name is MSExchangeUMClientAccess. Optional code:

3. Exception: The exception thrown is : System.InvalidOperationException: The

requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be

initialized as ReadOnly.

Active Manager failed to mount database Mailbox Database 0923462786 on

server LSM.RABE.NET. Error: An Active Manager operation failed with a

transient error. Please retry the operation. Error: A transient error

occurred during discovery of the database availability group topology. Error:

Database action failed with transient error. Error: A transient error

occurred during a database operation. Error: MapiExceptionNetworkError:

Unable to make admin interface connection to server

The Microsoft Exchange Mail Submission service is currently unable to

contact any Hub Transport servers in the local Active Directory site. The

servers may be too busy to accept new connections at this time.

Exchange Search Indexer has failed to crawl the mailbox

(a91f0601-6e2e-4152-ad0c-9dad339de2e0) in database (Mailbox Database

0923462786) due to error:

(Microsoft.Exchange.Search.MailboxCrawlFailedException: Failed to get entry

id or create folders to index -Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.MailboxInTransitException: Cannot open

mailbox /o=Rabe Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group

(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=LSM/cn=Microsoft System

Attendant. ---> Microsoft.Mapi.MapiExceptionMailboxInTransit:

MapiExceptionMailboxInTransit: Unable to open message store.

I'm guessing that the above is a result, not a cause, of being in a

perpetual CompletionInProgress mode. Another:

There are 5 RPC requests for the mailbox "/o=Rabe Organization/ou=First

Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=Vern" on the database "/o=Rabe

Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group

(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=LSM/cn=Microsoft Private

MDB" that have taken an abnormally long time to complete. This may be

indicative of performance issues with your server.

Again, I think it's a result, not a cause. In addition, there are constant

warnings of failed logon:

User Vern Rabe (/o=Rabe Organization/ou=First Administrative

Group/cn=Recipients/cn=Vern) failed to log on because their mailbox is in the

process of being moved.

thanks for any assistance/direction.

After my last post, I installed RU3 (RU2?) on the target server, and within

30 minutes the move completed.

Thanks for heading me in the right direction.
