The other day while updating Exchange 2016 to the latest CU, I ran across the following error message:
An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The database action failed. Error: Move for database ‘DatabaseName’ was suppressed because too many moves have happened recently. 3 moves have happened within 01:00:00
Before updating, I had applied the latest security patches plus needed to update .NET Framework so I was moving datastores back and forth.
To get around this error you can use the SkipMoveSuppressionChecks parameter.
Move-ActiveMailboxDatabase -Identity ‘DatabaseName’ -ActivateOnServer ‘ExchangeServer’ -SkipMoveSuppressionChecks
