Exchange 2003 to 2010 Public Folder Migration, folders are empty.

I am trying to migrate our public folders from 2003 to 2010. I performed the AddReplicaToPF script, and the folders are empty. I tried MoveReplica, but the folders are still empty. When I try to manage the folders from the 2003, I get a strange error: The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found. (ID: c0072afc)

I can see that the folders have a size, so the data is still there. I need to recover this data and put it back into the public folders, somehow. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Possible Causes

You are unable to resolve the DNS name for the server you are trying to connect to in ESM.


Try pinging the server by both the NetBIOS name and the FQDN name.

If the server's name is not registered in DNS, go ahead and register it. At a command prompt on the remote server, type ipconfig /registerdns. Verify in the DNS manager that this name was registered properly.

Sorry, I should have posted. I tried that. The server is able to resolved both the host name and the FQDN. I am unsure what I should do after this. I actually did the MoveAllReplicas back to the old server and the folders are working again. I must have missed a step initially. Thanks for the response.

I'm going to try to do the move again at another time.
