I have a question about Pfmigrate. I am in the process of cutting over to another Exchange Server  on the same Domain to replace our aging one. After configuring the second box I ran Pfimigrate to replicate the Public Folders and Systm Files. Everything looked fine. I followed Microsoft KB articles for optimizing and tuning, I ran the Best Practice Analyzer and all was good.I moved over a couple of mailboxes to test and everything seemed fine. I ran into a problem with the second box along the way because I "fat fingered" something playing around with settings. I backed up the Stores and Logs. I re-istalled IIS and then Exchange. Then I restored the Databases.and Logs. all seemed fine. My question is do I have to rerun Pfmigrate? I originally backed up the system State but I did not restore it because evrything seemed fine after restoring the Databases and logs.

The syntax is simple:

To move System Folders

PFMIGRATE.WSF /S:SourceServer /T:DestinationServer /SF /A /N:100 /F:C:\LOGFILE.LOG

To move Public Folders

PFMIGRATE.WSF /S:SourceServer /T:DestinationServer /A /N:100 /F:C:\LOGFILE.LOG

To remove Public Folders after succesful Replication

PFMIGRATE.WSF /S:SourceServer /T:DestinationServer /D
