Removing Public Folder server from org

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.

Among the most obnoxious of Exchange errors is error 1216 – Attached Database Mismatch error of the Jet Database Engine. When faced with this error, users may have to suffer from mailbox inaccessibility and in worst situations, permanent data loss.
Microsoft Jet database engine errors can crop up out of nowhere to disrupt the working of the Exchange server. Decoding why a particular error occurs goes a long way in determining the right solution for it.
