Exchange 2003 Public Folder Removal after migration to Exchange 2010

We migrated from Exchange 2003 to 2010 and I’m now ready to uninstall Exchange 2003. The problem I’m facing is I cannot remove Public Folders. I don’t want to move Public Folders over to Exchange 2010 since we have no need for them. Besides, when I try to move replicas to exchange 2010, I’m getting an error, “the token supplied to the function is invalid”. Can somebody please shed some light on the process of removal and Exchange 03 uninstall?

Thanks

Guys thank you for the information. I just tried to run AddReplicatToPFRecursive.ps1 and MoveAllReplicas.ps1. Am I supposed to see any kind of confirmation that it ran successfully? It does not give me any error codes or confirmations, just simply moves to command prompt and when I go back to Exchange 2003 I’m still unable to delete PF’s.

Microsoft has supplied a PowerShell script called MoveAllReplicas.ps1 for moving public folder replicas,you can run the following command from script folder to move the public folder replicas

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Scripts

(.\MoveAllReplicas.ps1 -Server SERVER-1 -NewServer SBSSERVER) to move replicas to exchange 2010 server

Can you try using the RemoveReplicaFromPFRecursive.ps1 script included in Exchange 2010? It's located in the Scripts folder of the Exchange directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\V14\Scripts by default I believe).

I ended up manually searching through AD and removed any references to the Public Folder. Once i removed AD records i was able to delete PF.
