We performed a 2000 to 2003 migration on seperate servers but forgot to export the public folders from the old (2000) server. The public folders database still resides on the old server, although Exchange has been removed.

What is the best way to recover these public folders and import them to the new Exchange Server?

hello,
What u can do is u can try fork lifting the public folder database from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003 server..
which is the only possible way to do as of now...

but for forklifting as well u need to have the previous server to be applied with SP3 for Exchange 2000 if you had Sp3 applied then follow the below steps to fork lift the database in 2003

1. Stop the Information Store service
2. Put in the old 2000 database where your existing(Exchange 2003) Public Folder Database is present.
3. Restart the SA
4. Start the Information Store Service.
5. Right click and mount the Public Folder store.

Check weather all the data is present or not it should be present..

Lemme know if this helps.
 

Regards,
Abhijeet Kulkarni.
