We are running Exchange 2003 SP2/2007 SP2 and are in the process of removing the last 2003 Servers before we start with Exchange 2010. One of the server types we need to remove is a dedicate Public Folder server in one of the sites. There should be no databases pointing to this PF server anymore as all the 2007 mailbox servers point to 2007 Public Folder servers.

However:

i. Is there a way to find out if there is still access to this PF?

ii. Once we remove the replicas etc, should there be any PF replication messages to this PF server?

Short of checking every server? Im afraid That would be THE only way. Once That server is remover from THE replica ion set there should be no traffic to it

can think of one way - not pretty but should work.

Shut down PF server.

Increase PF replication logging on remaining PF servers.

Bring back PF server - do you see any replication traffic (you should see hierarchy traffic followed by content traffic) ?

Restore default logging levels.
