Cannot view public folders in Exchange 2007 powershell.
Posted on 2007-11-26
So I'm learning Exchange on-the-fly as I had to do a transition from 2000 to 2007. Not the ideal way to learn, but it is what it is. Went well for the most part, but now I see I've made a mistake. After I'd moved all the mailboxes, replicated the public folders, set the new server to accept mail, et cetera, I shut down all of the mail services on the old server and let everything sit for a few days. No issues came up and so I uninstalled Exchange 2000.
Now I see an issue. Started when I was clicking through my public folders in Outlook and one of them came up as not accessible. I opened powershell on the E2K7 server and typed get-publicfolder only to receive the following in ugly red letters:
Get-PublicFolder : There is no existing PublicFolder that matches the following
Identity: '\'. Please make sure that you specified the correct PublicFolder Id
entity and that you have the necessary permissions to view PublicFolder.
At line:1 char:16
+ get-publicfolder <<<<
Losing the one public folder isn't a big deal to be honest, and the rest seem to be accessible, but I'm sure this error isn't a good thing. It also seems I did not replicate the Free Busy Schedule. Any help would be appreciated.
