Failed move request, the mailbox is still marked is being moved

Yesterday, we got multiple mailbox move failed due to some reason and we clear the move request from mailboxes. But after clear the move request the mailbox is still marked is being moved and cannot be removed again. the mailbox is shown with a green icon on the EMC (Exchange Management Console), when i checked on the "Move Request" section and tried to check via Get-MoveRequest command and cannot be cleared with the Remove-MoveRequest command.

mailbox moved has failed due to it take long time to move some of the too many bad items on the source mailbox
(Fatal error TooManyBadItemsPermanentException has occurred).


  • Open ADSIEDIT and navigate to the OU where the user located. 
  • Locate the user account, right-click on it and then choose "Properties".
  • Click on the "Filter" button and make sure "Show only attributes that have values" is checked.
  • Scroll down the attributes and search for an entry called "msExchMailboxMoveRemoteHostName".
  • Click on the "Edit" button.
  • Click on the "Clear" button.
  • Click the "OK" button.

Keep Learning!
