I have two exchange servers and I am decommissioning one of them. I have already moved all my mailboxes to the "new" server. How do I move Public Folders?

Hi,

The previous post was more for PF Migration from 5.5 to 2003.

Generally the process of shifting/moving Public Folders from one Exchange server 2003 to another server is called "rehoming." Basically what you do it create a replica of Public Folders on Destination server. Once replication is done, then remove the replica from source server. Then you can go ahead and remove it.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
