    Powershell, becuase the GUI was annoying me.

    I don't understand why the GUI allows you to view 500 users in the user selection window for migration, but doesn't have any "next page" arrows?! Seems a bit strange. I ended up doing it based on moving every user from database A to database B though. Using the commands:
    Code:
    Get-Mailbox -Database "2010databasenamehere" -ResultSize Unlimited | New-MoveRequest -TargetDatabase "2013databasenamehere"
    Then this command to check on the status:
    Code:
    Get-MoveRequest|Get-MoveRequestStatistics
    which would list all of them (takes time to load if you have a lot)

    or

    Code:
    Get-MoveRequestStatistics "username"
    for an individual user

    If you get any mailboxes that give you the error "FailedOther" then try this command on them individually:
    Code:
    New-MoveRequest -Identity "username" -TargetDatabase "2013databasenamehere" -BatchName "anynameyoulike" -BadItemLimit "200"
    EDIT: oh and last but not least, are your databases content index state showing up as healthy? (go to databases > select one > look on the right hand side info

    Good stuff, just incase it's something that happens during migration though, just check to make sure you have a security group in AD called "ContentSubmitters"

    Read about it last night, Exchange is meant to create that group when it's installed but some bug stops it from creating it. If it doesn't exist then create it in the "Microsoft Exchange Security Groups" OU, and leave it's memberships blank but do right click > properties > security and add administrators and network service as full control.

    During migration my mailboxes would get stuck on a status of "StalledDueToCI", they'd carry on but take much longer to migrate until i created that group.

    EDIT: I'm going to pretty much note down the fix for every problem I've come across in either this thread or the other one i made, just incase i need to refer to them in the future. Also helpful for others

    Oh last but not least, after you've completed your migration, don't forget to clear the migration completed flag from the accounts with the following command:
    Code:
    Get-MoveRequest -MoveStatus Completed | Remove-MoveRequest
    The Remove-MoveRequest command is useful if you come across any that fail to migrate too, as you'll have to do that before you can try migrating it again.

    Just doing some more testing to find out bugs. I have found if you have an account that has "Must change password on next logon" you can't log into OWA. This was the same for OWA 2010. In OWA 2010 i followed this guide and it allowed the user to reset the password in OWA before they get into webmail. This reg edit is already in 2013 and it doesn't work.

    Apparently on the CAS servers do this:
    Go to IIS, Default Website, OWA. Under Authentication go to Basic Authentication. Under actions press edit then set the default domain to "\"

    After that do IISreset in the command prompt.

    Yes, you won't be able to remove the 2010 servers if you don't, I believe.

    I've got a new problem....
    I've finished migrating all my accounts, migrated public folders, got to the point of being able to dismount and delete the databases on the exchange 2010 server.

    ... but... Exchange 2013 outlook web app....you click on "To" I can then go to directories to see all the email addresses of everyone in our domain, but where the hell are groups? where are the address lists?!

    I can scroll down the loooong list of near 2000 addresses to find the groups, but where's the option to specifically select a group etc?

    EDIT: Just created my own group and set it to only show groups, that works fine. It has the same contents as the "All Groups" group has but that one doesn't show up.

    I think that is normal until you press the address list the groups are in.

    I've decided to go down another route, I'm deleted all the ones that have migrated across and are telling me i can only manage them through the shell and creating new lists in the GUI for each one. Only about 5 that need sorting anyway i suppose.
