Types of tasks include moving mailboxes to the database, importing mailbox data into a mailbox located on the database, and restoring mailbox data to a mailbox located on the database. You can specify a value from 0 through 100. The default value is 2 concurrent tasks. Suggestion: leave at 2.

4. Remove the MRSserver CAS from from your Load Balancer pool

5. Set the move request command with the MRS server:

E.g. New-MoveRequest -Identity ‘dame@domain.com’ -TargetDatabase DB01 -MRSServer {server name}
