Missing Default and ExchangeV1 public folders after Migration

Posted on 2007-09-30

I just did a migration from Exchange 2000 to exchange 2003. Everything seems to work fine, but I don't seem to have the Default and ExchangeV1 folders in my public folders list on ESM. This worries me, as I distinctly remember being told that I don't have to replicate these as exchange does it itself. Will I have problems in the future? is there something I should do?

    The only folders that you had to replicate from the old server are the ones outlined in this article:

    The folders you have mentioned are not in the list, so I wouldn't worry about them.

    Thanls for the list. However, After waiting for a week and still not seeing any Default and ExchangeV1 folders on my new exhange's public filder, I decided to try replicating them myself. Now they are not even on my old server. But, everything seems to be working fine, and i'm not getting any errors.

    Should I be worried? At some point I want to remove my old exchange server from the network, and I don't want everything going pear shaped.

    I only replicate the folders in that list. The other's I don't care about as they are specific to each server. I would go through the procedure to remove the old server.
