Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 introduces the concept of batch moves and migration endpoints. Migration endpoints are management objects that describe the remote server and the connections that can be associated with one or more batches. And, the new batch move architecture improves on Mailbox Replication service (MRS) moves with enhanced management capability. Batch moves architecture in Exchange 2013 features the following capabilities:
- Ability to move multiple mailboxes in large batches.
- Email notification during move with reporting.
- Automatic retry and automatic prioritization of moves.
- Primary and personal archive mailboxes can be moved together or separately.
- Option for manual move request finalization, which allows you to review your move before you complete it.
- Periodic incremental syncs to update migration changes.
