Moving Mailboxes are much easier. Unless we don’t get any errors (Just kidding)
so Lets start on How to do it.
Just before that. if your Mailbox size is more than 2 GB it won’t allow you to move to Exchange 2010
So for the time being you can Set Database Limits to Unlimited in Exchange 2010 Database as below
Go to Organizational Configuration > Mailbox > Database Management > Right click on the Database > Database Properties >Uncheck the Storage Limits as below
And Click on Apply and OK
You can See the mailboxes of Exchange 2003 in “Brown Color” . They are Legacy mailboxes (Exchange 2003)
You can See Recipient Type Details “Legacy Mailbox”
You can do in bulk , You can do a Local Move request
Browse for the Exchange 2010 Database
By Default “Skip the Mailbox” will be checked
But mostly we will have some corrupted items in Exchange 2003 mailboxes. 1 corrupted item may have the move request failed
Caution : “Those corrupted items are not recoverable”
Now Choose “Skip the Corrupted messages” and have value 50
If you don’t want to loose not even 1 corrupted items . you can have the default options checked
Now Move Requests have been Created
Now its not completed – They are Just requests
Now to See your Move Requests
You can see it Here
or You can run the Command in Exchange Management Shell
Get-Moverequest | Get-MoverequestStatistics
You got to Clear these move requests.
Unless you clear them You can’t move those mailboxes again
Now you can the Recipient Type Details and Color Changed
Now you learnt how to move to move mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010
Good for starters
You might want to mention that to get to Database Management, you need to go to Organization Config > Mailbox > Database Management tab. For some of us, the Exchange 2010 console is not that intuitive.
Will correct it tomo . Thank you for your feedback. Highly appreciate it . For spending time on this
Corrected Bart . Thanks
Key step missing here. How do you get the Exchange 2003 mailboxes to show up at all in the Exchange 2010 interface?
Brian, you might want to read the parent article from Step 1 on – that should get your 2003 mailboxes visible in 2010:
Either I am missing something or this is completely wrong. You cannot move mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 via the GUI you can only do it via ugly powershell commands.
Is this something MS took away with a SP in Exchange 2010 as it is not possible now.
Never mind it was my fault
Good to hear Craig !

There is a TCP property above the server object in adsi edit . check that
i have an errore when i move the mailbox, in outlook when i presse f9 i have erreur 0x80190194, i supose it’s offline adresse book.
Try Creating new Outlook Profile
Try Making Fresh OAB download.
Or we should check for OAB url and LZX generation on the server.

Do you have any script to move multiple mailboxes from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010…..
No . But you can run like . Get-Mailbox A* | new-moverequest -targetdatabase dbname
It will move only mailboxes which starts with A.
After moving the mailbox I can’t see any contacts that I could when the mailbox was hosted on the Exchange 2003 server.
If you are moving in the same forest. After you move.. you have to start managing it from 2010 . you wont see anything showing up on 2003.
