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.

you can use this gui tool to manage you PF, if you want to cheat, install your 2000 ESM on a client and you can use that as well....

If free busy is not replicated it should repopulate by the client

Get-publicfolderstatistics does show the folders, number of objects and date modified.  That's were part of my confusion is.

If you do get-publicfolder with no identity it shows the root only \non_ipm_subtree which is the system foldres

get-publicfolder and get-publicfolder -recurse | fl give the same result:

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.
