Cannot Remove a Move Request in Exchange

Scenario:  Currently a mailbox move has been stuck ‘in progress’.  The database it was moving to is now down or cannot be accessed.  You cannot remove a move request for a mailbox. Running the Remove-moverequest with the -moverequestqueue and -mailboxguid parameters did not work either as suggested by other articles.

Solution:  In ADSI Edit (Default Naming Context mode), locate the user account and right click for properties. Clear the two attributes associated with that user account:   msExchMailboxMoveFlag  &   msExchMailboxMoveStatus
