I have uninstalled exchange from an old SBS2008 server.  The public folder
did not replicate to the new sbs server.  I have a copy of the Public Folder.EDB file
from the old server.  How can I move it to the new SBS server?

i'm no expert but .

we had a combined HDD failure and store corruption and got a real expert (http://www.experts-exchange.com/M_4310906.html) involved remotely who used PowerControl if my memory is correct.

Though a quick google "mount old edb" finds a few options..DigiScope seems better value for a one-off.

If the new SBS Server has been brought with the same Organization Name and the Server Name as the Old SBS Server then you can still use the Old Database to Mount on the New Server.

If not then you would not be able to mount it. In that case easiest way would be get a third party Software that can extract the PST from the Database. (EDB File).
