I used demazter's article http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/A_2465-Migrate-Windows-2003-with-Exchange-to-Small-Business-Server-2008.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+30+migrat+sb

To migrate Server 2003 Std with Exchange 2003 to SBS 2008.

All went well until the move Public Folders section. I have selected "move all replicas" and selected the destination server. I did this yesterday morning and last night.

When I go back to "move all replicas" the destination server is still a choice to move to.

I would really like to retire this box, so I would appreciatte any help you can offer,

Rick

This may sound silly but have your rebooted the source server. I had this same issue and we had to reboot the source server before it would allow us to transfer the public folders.

Your email will go down during that time because of how the migration is still using the mail stores.

"Depending upon the replication interval you have set and the amount of information that must be replicated, this process may take from several hours to days to complete."
from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc527516(WS.10).aspx

On migrations I have done sometimes PF move replicas took also 2-3 days even if PF contained really small amount of data. Some information about moving you can get from Public Folder Instances folder.

Thank you for the help.

casedog21:
thanks for the double check, but yes I have rebooted the source server last night.
When you say the email will be down does that mean for the entire time the PF transfer is taking place?

davorin:
I have not set a replication interval, where do I change the default?
Is there any way to check if it is in process while waiting 2-3 days.
the PF in question were really barely used and generally empty.

Thanks again.

I meant that the email would be down during the reboot.
