In Exchange, if you try and move a mailbox that h as a completed move request, you will receive the following error:

To fix this error, you need to clear the move requests, to do so you can run the following command:

  • Get-MoveRequest | Remove-MoveRequest

As you can see above, I did not include the $confirm option, if you have hundreds of move requests to clear you don’t want to type “y” for each one.

After it has cleared the move request you can re-submit your move request and it should go through.

Hope it helps.

Hi, thanks for the info. Have you ever come across where you have removed the move requests but if you run the command get-moverequest they all still show up. when you go to ADSI edit and look at the user no move request is flagged. cant seem to get rid of them and any new move requests just sit as queued.
