SwitchOver Exchange Server Using Powershell

This article will show you how to Switchover Exchange server databases from one server to another.

Using the Switchover option, we can move all active databases from one server to another using a single command.

In large environments this option can save a lot of time.

In the example below all DBs on EX2 server will be activated on Server EX1.

Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -Server EX2-ActivateOnServer EX1

This cmdlet will work on Exchange 2010, 2013 and 2016.
