Exchange 2007 server to a new 2007 Server
Posted on 2009-07-14
Exchange 2007 Std on a creeky old server, I want move its contents onto a nice shiney new one (W2k3 both servers).
Progress so far:
a) I have installed the new server
b) I have moved all mailboxs to the new server
c) I have used the MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server old_mail -NewServer new_mail
Everything works fine.....
So now I foolishly I think that I can turn off the old_mail server. HOWEVER when I dismount the second mail store on the old_mail server the public folders (which are now ONLY on the new_mail server) dissappear
I did the "Press CTRL and right click the Outlook 2003 system Icon" to get the Exchange connections and it points to the new_mail server for mail, but old_mail for the public folders!
I am confused, I have read so many things now, I am not sure what is going on.
I just want to be able to switch the old_mail server off and set at it with a big hammer :)
Thanks in advance.
