I have an issue here. We currently have Exchange 2003 running in our environment. I recently joined a Exchange 2007 server to the organization because the plan is to migrate have both running and slowly migrate everything over to 2007. After some issues with the server, I have decided to uninstall/remove the 2007 from Exchange organization and reinstall it.
During the uninstallation, there were issues with Public Folder removal and I had to force it by using this method - http://telnetport25.wordpress.com/2007/08/21/quick-tip-removing-exchange-2007-error-with-public-folder-replicas/
I was finally able to uninstall Exchange 2007 but the problem is that my Public Folders are now not working. We weren't using it extensively but there was some data I'd like to get.
Currently, this is what's happening -
In ESM, under First Administrative Group-> Folders-> Public Folder Tree is there but it is empty
In Outlook 2003, when I try to open the Public Folder, I am getting a "Unable to display the folder" message
I do have a Microsoft Backup of last night's information store which should contain the public folder information. Thanks in advance!
