Mass mailbox moves in Exchange 2010

Once in your Exchange administrator lifetime, you will be conducting mass mailbox moves whether its preparation for some work or just as a part of some testing or decommissioning process. At some point you will probably be faced with this task.

As an approach to minimising impact to your personal time and social life, the best method to move mass mailboxes is utilising csv files, where there will be a list of users and a target database.
You can also use it to move users from Exchange 2003/2007 to 2010 using Exchange Powershell on Exchange 2010.

[PS] Import-CSV "C:\list_of_users1.csv" | foreach {New-MoveRequest -Identity $_.alias -TargetDatabase DB01}
