Ive recently installed exchange 2010 in an old 2003 organisation, Ive migrated all the mailboxes and replicated all the PF's. All is working well as it is but I want to uninstall the old 2003 box. The only problem I have is if I shut it down then the clients are still looking for the 2003 box for thier public folders even though I have replicated them and they are on the 2010 box? Would this sort its self out if I uninstalled the 2003 box??

Hello,

Make sure the Mailbox Database on Exchange 2010 are pointing to its own public folder database.

Mailbox Database --> Properties --> Client settings --> Public folder database.

Hello Plug1,

Restart the IS service. And the client should pick up immediately. To confirm you can stop the services on Exchange server 2003 and moniter the functionality of the Exchange server 2010.

Regards,

:)
