SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, if you use the Exchange Management Console to schedule a task to move a mailbox, the console must remain open until the operation is complete.

WORKAROUND

To work around this behavior, use the AT command in Exchange Management Shell, as in the following example.
At 16:00 /interactive powershell.exe –noexit -psconsolefile "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin\exshell.psc1" -command "Move-Mailbox –identity <user@domain.com> -TargetDatabase <NewMailboxDatabase>"

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
