Public folder instances, Exchange 2007 Migration.

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.

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.
