Cannot replicate Public Folders from Exchange 2003 to 2007

Hi all,

Okay, I 've searched through other posts, I've tried numerous tricks etc., but I simply cannot get Public Folders to replicate from an Exchange 2003 server (LTNEXCH) that I'm transitioning to an Exchange 2007 server (LTNEXCH-VM).

All the mailboxes have been moved, email appears to be flowing in all directions and I'm preeping to demote the 2003 server but I can't until the Public Folders move.

Currently, under ESM on the 2003 box, I have the new server added to the REPLICATION tab on all our PFs.  They are also set to 'Always Run' and 'Normal'.  On each one of these, when I click the DETAILS button, or view the replication status, all I can see is the current server as "In Sync" and the new server as "Local Modified".  none of the PFs are showing up on the new server.

Some notes:
- I don't have a smarthost configured anywhere.
- When I try to "Synchronise Content" from 2k3 ESM, I get "The Microsoft Exchange Information Store could not find the specified object.  ID no: c1041722"

I'm having a few other random issues, but one step at a time!

I'm running native mode and that KB doesn't relate to my issue as I can mount the store just fine and I'm not getting any of the errors it is referring to...

Ok, thanks guys, I've backed up the PFs to a pst and reimported that back into the Exchange 2k7 PFs heirarchy - it all seems to be okay... I think!

I'll be back with more 2007 'issues' very soon!

I decided to split the points, good news is that I didn't have to redo all the permissions - they remained intact!

Cheers!

Hello Schikitar,

The drawback with that method is you have to re-assign all the permissions again, I had the same problem Last year and I Posted the information here on how to fix the problem....

Hi Pete,

All the permissions remained intact for some reason (no complaints!), and I wasn't getting that error you linked to either...

Cheers, Dave.
