how to replicate Exchange 2007 Public Folder to another Exchang 2007

Hi

we have
We have Exchange 2007 server without Service pack.We want to do a Disastery Center at a different location.For Disastery SCR (standby continious replication) will be used.Before do this we have to install Exchange 2007 SP1 but We don't want to install service pack to exist Exchange 2007. becasue existing mail server is  very critical for business.  to do this we will plan to a install new Exchange server (HT and Mailbox) with sp1 to exist Exchange organization before doing Disastery plan.Then moving mailboxes to new installed Exchange 2007 with sp1 server.Then old Exchange 2007 which doesn't have sp1 will be uninstall it.if this first step will be successfull then we will start doing disastery plan ( like installing a exchange server to another location etc.)

i want to ask you before i unistall old exchange server. which key point i have to consider?

1-how to move system folder to anther exchange?
2-which system folders i have to move  ? move all system folder?


thank you

Best Regards

You really need to install at least Exchange 2007 SP1, and preferably SP2. You are basically using a product that is two years old, which is no longer patched or updated. While email may well be critical, that is the same for most companies. That doesn't mean you shouldn't maintain it. My car is critical to me, that doesn't mean I don't send it for a service once a year.

Once you have the service pack in place you can look at managing the public folders.

The best thing to do though is run the AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1 script which is in the Scripts directory on the Exchange 2007 program files. That will allow you to add the second server to the list of replicas in one hit.

There is no such thing as a manual replication.
The only thing that you can do is extract all of the public folder content manually through Outlook to a PST file and then import it manually through Outlook again.
You lose all permissions, email address and other settings, so it needs to be heavily documented and is only something that I have done as a last resort.

However, you really really need to install Exchange 2007 SP2 on to the machine. As I said above, if email is critical to your business then you shouldn't be working on an out of date product.
