The Exchange Management Console must remain open when you schedule a task to move a mailbox in Exchange 2007 or in Exchange 2003

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
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.
