What happends and how does a Remote Move Request work?
There are two ways, Powershell or Exchange Management Console.
The Move Requst are initiated from Exchange Online, therefore you need to input your On-Prem Credentials even when you use the EMC on your On-Prem Exchange Server. You only point to the mailbox you would like to move when you right click it and choose New Remote Move Request. So to understand this better we will have a look at how this happends in PowerShell.
As you can see you have start PowerShell and connect to your Office 365 Tenant with Exchange Online Cmdlets. So this what you acctually do when using the wizard for Remote Move Requests in EMC.

$LiveCred = Get-Credentials (Office 365 Global Admin User) $RemCred = Get-Credentials (On-Prem Exchange User with full mailbox rights) $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection Import-PSSession $Session New-Moverequest -Identity firstname.lastname@example.org -Remote -RemoteHostName hybridserver.company.com -TargetDeliveryDomain tenantname.mail.onmicrosoft.com -Remotecredential $remcred Extraa attributes: -BadItemsLimit X -LargeItemLimit X
