Exchange 2010: Moving Messages to Another Working Queue on another CAS Server

One of my CAS Hub servers was acting up and started queuing email. I needed to move the message to another working server while I needed time to troubleshoot what was causing the queuing.

This is what I had to do.

On the non working server:

  • Create a Folder on C: called MailsExport
  • Open Exchange Management Shell and type the following:
  • Mail should start exporting.
  • Once completed Move the *.eml files to the “Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Pickup” folder on the working server.
  • The new server should immediately start processing the messages.

Updating the system time on Server 2008R2 & 2012R2 using NTP Servers

    1. To update, use the command below (2008 and 2012 server compatible)
      change the ntp_server with your source. Check http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi for servers
    2. Restart the time service
    3. Resync the time
    4. Verify your sync status

Commands above should be fine if your sources are working correctly and/or your connection is OK (firewall or Microsoft Forefront can be an issue also).

The commands below can help with troubleshooting
