During Exchange 2010 migration from 2007 public folders do not finish moving to the new server

We're in the middle of a migration from sbs 2008 to 2010. I'm asking this here because it's specifically an Exchange error.

I have used the moveallreplicas.ps1 script as per the migration guide to trigger the move of public folders to the new server. it's been over 48 hours since i triggered it. We have a very small public folders. When using the get-publicfolderstatistics command i can see that most replicas have moved but there is one exchangev1 folder and two of my folders still on the old server. I cannot delete the public folder yet because of that. checking both servers I can see that the folders exist on both servers but there are far more items in the three folders left on the source server than are in those same folders on the destination. Triggering the command again doesn't change the item counts at all. if i use an out-file and look at the details of the folders left i see they are marked pending delete true. All the other folders have moved. There are a couple thousand items left in these two folders which look like they've partially replicated.

How do I force this thing to finish or if I can't how can i manually delete them because i don't really really need these exact folders, I just want to be able to finish this migration.

If you want a copy of the items, open a mailbox on the Exchange 2007 server with Outlook and copy the offending folders to PST

Then go into EMC PF manager on E2k7 and remove the replica from the E2k7 server

MegaNuk3: I had been told that it wouldn't complete migration correctly if I manually deleted things. Therefore I waited another day and the replication completed itself.

Admin: please close this ticket.
