I am attempting to replicate public folders from a 2003 Exchange server to an Exchange 2010 server in order to proceed with decommissioning the 2003 Exchange server.
I attempt to run pfmigrate.wsf /S:OLDSERVERNAME /T:NEWSERVERNAME /R :F:C:\logname.log on the Exchange 2003 server (MDSVR02) and receive the following:
Could not find a Public Store associated with the Public Folder Tree "Public Folders" on server 'MDEXCH'. (note: server MDEXCH is the new 2010 server)
Something else I should note is that when on the Exchange 2010 server, when I went to move the Public Folder database to the data drive from the default C: location I received this error:
Summary: 1 item(s). 1 succeeded, 0 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:23
Public Folder Database 0313255994
Couldn't communicate with the Microsoft Exchange Replication service on server "MDEXCH.moderndata.com" to pick up new configuration changes for database "Public Folder Database 0313255994". Make sure that the service is running and that the server has network connectivity. Error: A server-side administrative operation has failed. The database operation failed. Error: Could not find a valid configuration for database '3204baca-f239-4f22-bbd2-716a100e9504' on server 'MDEXCH'. [Database: Public Folder Database 0313255994, Server: MDEXCH.moderndata.com]
Exchange Management Shell command completed:
move-DatabasePath -Identity 'Public Folder Database 0313255994' -EdbFilePath 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Public Folder Database 0313255994\Public Folder Database 0313255994.edb' -LogFolderPath 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\Public Folder Database 0313255994'
