SBS2003 to SBS2011 Migration
Posted on 2011-03-05
I have installed SBS2011 in preparation to migrate from SBS2003 to SBS2011 during the week.
Then this weekend, I got to a point where it was time to migrate the mailboxes and in the dialog, all the users have red X's or if you right-click a user you get an error where it can't get at the properties.
Everything prior to that was perfect, no issues or problems, smooth sailing as I followed the migration documentation.
At that point I backed out and stopped the process. But, it had already deleted the connector and migrated the public folders.
I fixed the conenctor so to get the SBS2003 working again, but the public folders data is move over and not sure how to get it back.
I tried using eseutil to fix and restore the pub1.ebd pulled from the backup, got the 3 logs it said it was missing but something about E00 was tossed out and of course could not restore it back. Other than the 3 logs it need to fix the pub1.edb, I'm not sure what else it needs to make it work again. How do I know what base file it needs in addition to the 3 logs eseutil said were needed?
I don't also understand why in the SBS2011 migration tool it says it can see/find the SBS2003 message store gievn it had no issues with the public store. Go figure.
Any ideas how to fix the public folders from a backup pub1.edb file and the 3 logs eseutil said it needed?
