Exchange 2016 | Remove completed move request list via Powershell.

By | March 12, 2018
A couple of days ago I was working with a client to move hidden mailboxes into a new database.  I ran the command to move the mailboxes and I got an error stating that the mailbox had already been moved.
This error happens when you try to move a mailbox that has already been moved.  You need to go back to the new Exchange 2016 server.
If you use the command.:

Get-MoveRequest

You will see the complete list of the move request(s).
The following command can be used to complete the request.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-MoveRequest -movestatus completed | remove-moverequest

Confirm

Are you sure you want to perform this action?

Removing completed move request “Administrator”.

[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [?] Help (default is “Y”): A

After you select “A”, all completed move request will be deleted.
