Hello There,

We are migrating/demoting our Exchange SP1 (fully patched) 2007 server to a new 2010 Installl. Already migrated all mailboxes sucessfully to the new instance and 2007 mailbox DB is empty right now, BUT PF still are referred to the old server and even with the PF new DB created on the new server if I place the 2007 server down (replication is set and running constantly), PFs goes down and nobody is able to browse anything.

At this time, some users can browse PF using client computers and other can't. Everyone can access PFs thru the new OWA (2010) access.

Get-MailboxDatabase |FL Id*, PublicFolderDatabase  shows

Identity                        : NEW2010SERVER
PublicFolderDatabase : OLD2007SERVER\Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database

I need to get rid of the old Exchange Server asap...

Thanks for your help guys.

Warren

Right Click on the Mailbox Database on the Exchange 2010.
Properties -> Client Settings -> Make sure that the Public Folder it is pointing to is the Exchange 2010 Public Folder and not the Exchange 2007 PF.

Hello

Now Get-MailboxDatabase |FL Id*, PublicFolderDatabase  shows

Identity                        : NEW2010SERVER
PublicFolderDatabase : NEW2010SERVERPFDB

I already Dismounted the legacy PF database and no complaints, also I've tested one of my troubled clients and PF are shown there.

Thanks a lot,  AshwinRaj111
