Exchange 2010, by default, allows you to do 2 concurrent mailbox moves. This is a rather conservative approach, in this age of 10Gb Ethernet and super-fast SAN storage. Fortunately Microsoft has provided a mechanism whereby we can increase the amount of concurrent moves allowed.
Said mechanism involves editing the MSExchangeMailboReplication.exe.config file, which resides under the C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\ foler.
These are the changes you need to make if you’d want to allow 20 concurrent moves:
- MaxActiveMovesPerSourceMDB = “20"
- MaxActiveMovesPerTargetMDB = “20"
- MaxActiveMovesPerTargetServer = “20"
Once you’ve made the changes you will also need to restart the Microsoft Exchange Replication service. Lastly – all the above needs to be done on the target server.
Quick and easy, just the way I like it!
