I added a new Exchange 2007 SP1 Mailbox-server to our existing Exchange 2007 environment. As I am fairly new to the whole concept of Exchange I created a Public Folder-database on the new server to get a hang of how things work.
However, as I try to delete the new PF-database I receive the following error:
"The public folder database "LANC-MBX02V\First Storage Group\Public Folder Database" contains folder replicas. Before deleting the public folder database, remove the folders or move the replicas to another public folder database. For detailed instructions about how to remove a public folder database, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=81409
Having googled the problem I understand that one cannot delete a PF-database unless empty. The new PF-database contains an empty "Default Public Folders"-object and a somewhat populated "System Public Folders"-object. The database has been mounted once but never "used".
All the KB's, forums and articles I've read talk about moving the replicas to another PF-database but is that really needed? Can't I just remove all the content in that PF-database or will it damage the rest of the Exchange Organization? If removal does no harm, how would I go about to do this?
Thanks in advance!
