Had an Exchange 2003 server failure. Private and Public databases were corrupt. Recovered the Private database and am preparing to move mailboxes to a newly created second Exchange 2003 server on same domain. Prior to moving mailboxes procedure is to replicate System Folders. System Folders unavailable on old Exchange server as Public database is still corrupt and has not been mounted. Question is;

The organization doesn't use any sharing or collaboration Public Folder services, is it necessary to fix the Public Folder store on the old server in order to replicate the System Folders or can they be newly created on the new Exchange server?

No it’s not necessary to fix old public folder issue, if you were not using public folder services.

Public Database contains below things
1) Free busy information
2) Offline Address Book
3) Common information

Impact: You will not get above information until you replicate old public database with new public database OR mount old public database in new created exchange server.

But you need to manually point to use Offline Address Book and Free busy information to new exchange server.
