public folder migration from sbs 2003 to sbs 2008
Posted on 2011-10-11
We're almost complete with a full 2003 -2008 migration. The last step is public folder migration. Did exactly what MS says...Just right click public folder, click move all replicas, select server, and let it run for hours if not days...Our public folders are less than 1gb and it has been 26 hours. Users are now complaining they can still see the public folder tree, but the contents are gone.
We created a new public test folder and posted in it and it immediately appeared on the source server public datastore which tells me that is still default and active. All folders in "public folder instances" are still there.
Our replicas are set to always run..Is this an issue?
So in summary.. Both public datastores on the source and destination server are running but appear to have zero data in them.
I know there is a lot of information I need to supply but please ask I can get it to you quickly.
