Need to decomission Exchange 2003 Server?

I need to remove public folder replicas by just removing  replica from folders or several folders at a time not just the whole public folder structure at once to avaid a broadcast storm when it updates. With ESM and PFDAVadmin I can only remove replicas one folder at a time.  I have 10,000 folders. How can I select 10 to 1000 folders at time?

I did , my question states that. PFDAVAdmin does not allow me to remove folder replication from folders and it's sub  folders at once , I have to select one folder at a time. Im have 50,000 folders. Please advise.

This article covers the ESM method which requires moving all replicaa at once , I need to move or remove replicas by folder structure or select mutliple folders at once. I  need to find a better solution.

Why don't you use ESM or PFDavAdmin to change the replicas on one PF branch and subfolders at a time?

Otherwise you could look at doing a PF replicas export to a CSV file and then use Excel to create an import file of a 1000 PFs and import that with the replica change?

./RemoveReplicaFromPFRecursive.ps1 –server <Server name> -ToPublicFolder “\FolderName”-ServerToRemove <Server name which will be removed from the replica list>

Does ./RemoveReplicaFromPFRecursive.ps1 only remove the top folder replica or can I remove subfolder replicas as well \folder\subfolder\subfolder?

Yes, I am pretty sure the "Recursive" part of the name means it does subfolders too ;-)

How about ./RemoveReplicaFromPFRecursive.ps1 –server <Server name> -ToPublicFolder “\FolderName\subfolder\subfolder ”-ServerToRemove <Server name which will be removed from the replica list> ?

I can't test anywhere yet.
