Exchange 2003, no public folders (error 80072030)

Hello,

I'm installing Exchange 2010 into an environment with a 2003 exchange server.  I ran the forestprep, domainprep, etc. and didn't get any errors.  In fact things are going well until its time to replicate the public folder info.

When I login in adminstrator with the appropriate permissions, and open ESM on Exchange 2003 and go down to "folders, public folders" I receive "There is no such object on the server".
(Error ID number: 80072030)

I've verified I am in NATIVE mode.

My users never used PUBLIC FOLDERS before, but I know system data etc is kept in there.  Is this a problem that needs attention, or since I am migrating them to 2010, can I ignore it? U!

THANK YOU!

If your users never use it then there is no need to replicate them, the system data can be recreated if required on Exchange 2010.

In E2010 if you are worried about the free\busy and OAB...they are could be moved out of the public folder and use the normal file system(s)

free\busy uses the web-services \ews\exchange.asmx files
OAB could be configured for the web-distribution @ the CAS server

>> what is the result when you try accessing teh public folder from e2010 console
(E2010 console..tools..public folder management console)

If I open EMC and navigate to Organization Configuration, Mailbox, I can open "public folders" from the database management lists tab and it shows the Exchange 2010 server as its location.  Is this what you mean?
