I’ve done some digging and I am not finding anyone else seeing this issue. I’ll setup the scenario.
Created a 2 node DAG. Added 10 mailboxes USR01_EX01 through USR05 & USR01_EX02 through USR05. Obviously when you create the users they sort of randomly get distributed between the available exchange mailbox databases. What I was attempting to do was move the EX01 users to the EX01 database/server and EX02 users to the EX02 database/server (this is for later testing purposes).
I run new-moverequest. It completes successfully. All of the get-* options show the database move. Show the previous database/new target one all correct. But if I run a get-mailbox the servername still shows the original servername.
Am I missing something or is the new-moverequest cmdlet not making all respective changes?
I realize this is more of an “Exchange” issue or at least an Exchange centric powershell cmdlet issue. However, the admins that actually use powershell as their primary means of administration are more likely to be viewing this forum and / or seen this issue.
I dont see a way to delete this. There is a bunch of funky stuff I am not understanding that I think has to do directly with the DAG. I am going to have to monkey around with it quite a bit more. Like: Why is get-mailboxdatabase now showing only server EX01 but if I do a get-mailboxdatabase | select admindisplayname,activationpreference I see the 2 databases with both servers listed with the preferences set properly… but only one server (when both are live) is being listed.
So yeah moderator just kill this one.
