SBS2003 to SBS2008 migration - Public Folder issues
Posted on 2010-08-13
We have recently done the above migration for a customer (we have done many of these previously), however, when i have come to uninstall exchange from the source server, it tells me that public folder replication has not completed. It has been 21 days now (i first tried the uninstall after 18 days) so i have given it enough time. On looking at the public folders, there is still data in the source folders. Now the source server is shutting itself down as it is over the 21 day limit. Does anyone have any suggestions for moving the remianing data in the public folders to the destination server? We do have a tape backup of the PF database from before the migration. Do you think we can restore the public folders to the new server (maybe a recovery database)?
