SBS 2011 Migration – Moving Mailboxes But No “New Local Move Request” Option Available?

When we were at the point where we needed to move our mailboxes off of the SBS v7 NDA bits onto the SBS 2011 RTM bits we were stymied by what seemed to be a missing command.


Right click on any user’s mailbox that did not have a green arrow on it and the New Local Move Request . . . option was available but not so with any user’s mailbox that had a green arrow already there.


It turns out that we needed to clear the previous move requests.


Click on Move Request under Recipient Configuration and we see a list of the mailboxes that have the move request menu item missing.


Right click on the mailbox and we see:


We highlighted all of the listed mailboxes right clicked and then clicked on Clear Move Request. All of the mailboxes were available to move after that.
