migrate mailboxes between exchange 2016 servers

I have a question about the migration of mailboxes in exchange 2016.
I currently have an exchange 2016.
Now I want to install another one in a remote location in the same AD domain.
Can mailboxes be moved between the two 2016 exchange servers?

Thank you

    Hi @pazzoide76 ,

    Sure, because your two servers are in the same domain, you can create a local move request between the two Exchange servers to move mailboxes.

    Use the EAC to create a local move request.

    1. Open the EAC, navigate to the Recipients > Migration > Click +, select Move to a different database.
    2. On the Select users page, select the user mailboxes that you want to move.
    3. On the Move configuration page, enter a new migration batch name, select whether to move the archive mailbox, and select the target database.
    4. When the Start the batch page configuration is complete, click New.

    Using Exchange Management PowerShell:
