SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You move mailboxes by using the MoveMailbox.ps1 script in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment. You use the DomainController parameter to specify a domain controller that writes the configuration changes. In this scenario, the script ignores the specified domain controller, and selects one available domain controller to write the changes.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the MoveMailbox.ps1 script does not pass the DomainController parameter to the New-MoveRequest cmdlet.
