I'm currently running Exchange 2000 Standard edition, I going to be installing a new 2000 server with exchange server 2000 standard edition on a new PDC to replace the current one which is dieing. My question may seem simple to some, i want to be able to document the current folder permissions for all public folders so i may renter those permissions on the new server. Is there a way that i can export a list of folder permission or export the ADS obects for the public folders so i will have the current permissions, so as not to lose anything when installing exchange fresh on the new server. I will not be doing a merge because there is just to much corruption on the current server i dont want to risk bringing over the current problems to the new server.

Thanks

Exporting the ADS object would only get mail attributes.  Permissions are held inside the store, not in AD.  The easiest way to export these permissions is with a utility called OutlookFolders (ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/PSS/Tools/Exchange%20Support%20Tools/Outlook_Folders/).  Note that this tool only exports permissions, it does not import them.  To do that you'll need pfadmin 1.3 (ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/PSS/Tools/Exchange%20Support%20Tools/PFAdmin/).  Be sure to use the one called pfadmin.exe, not pfadmine2k.exe.
