Ok, so I'm migrating SBS 2003 Server to Server 2008. I am up to exchnage tasks and have run into a problem with the public folder database. I mioved the replica to the new server. I do not see any of the folder instances moving over. I ran pfdavadmin and truthfully, not sure what I should be looking for. I have found some links with the problem, but It seems like log winded blogs and it is not helping me.

I have all limits off, no errors in event viewer. It has been 45 minutes since I moved replication and not one public folder has moved over. Thank you in advanced for any help you can provide. I appreciate it.

A 45 minute wait may not be long enough. I just migrated some public folders and it took about 8 hours for most of them to migrate. And the largest of them took 2 days.

Are you seeing the folders move or they went all at once?  Im not seeing the public folders move at all...

It is almost like nothing happens for a long time. Then you go check the Public Folder Instance and a big chunk of them will be gone.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

It has been almost 24 hrs and nothing has moved. I do not think it is working.

They never replicated, so I just exported all of the public folders, and imported them. Thank you for your help.

OK. I was going to propose that to you as an laternative, but I've been away from my PC.
