In Microsoft Exchange, Mailboxes are stored within Databases which are .edb files. There may come a time where you will be required to move a mailbox from one database to another. For example the database may have grown too large and you may need to move some mailboxes to a different location to allow further growth.
Below are some simple instructions on how to move a users mailbox using EAC Exchange Administration Console.
Before you begin –
- The estimated time to move a 3GB mailbiox could take up to an hour.
- You need to be assigned the appropriate permissions before you can perform this procedure.
- It is recommended to perform this after hours. The user must not access their mailbox during this time.
