Hello Gurus,

I need to move a Public folder from one Exchange 2007 to another exchange 2007 servr. Both are running on windows 2003 server -64bit. Actually I am working on to remove one Exchange 2007 server from a farm and currently moving mailboxes. The destination server does have a public folder database and has some public folders in it. While I will be eventually removing the Source Exchange server - I have one more Q. Do i need to move anything else apart from Public folders and mailboxes? I mean Schedule+ Free/Busy or anything?

If I follow the steps blow - will it work for me?

1. Add replica of Public folder to destination server.
2.  Wait for replication to complete.
3.  Remove the original replica on all folders.
4.  Remove the original public Folder.
