First error:
Inside EMC, navigate to Microsoft Exchange - Microsoft Exchange On-Premises (server) - Organization Configuration - Mailbox
Click on the Offline Address Book tab
Double-click Default Offline Address Book
Click the Distribution tab
Uncheck "Enable public folder distribution"

Second Error:
Inside EMC, navigate to Microsoft Exchange - Microsoft Exchange On-Premises (server) - Organization Configuration - Hub Transport
Click on the Send Connectors tab
If this is the last Exchange server, delete all the connectors listed here.
If this is not the last, double-click each connector and click on the Source Server tab.
Remove the server in question from the list.

If you're replicating with another server, open the Public Folders Tool, right-click and choose Move Replicas.
