The DomainController parameter does not work when you use the MoveMailbox.ps1 script to move mailboxes in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010


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.


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


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2579150 Description of Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
