Hi All

I am trying to remove the public folder database of Exchange 2007 but it is giving the error : The object is read only because it was created by a future version of Exchange: 0.10(, current supportedversion is 0.1 (8.0.535.0).

I tried to pass the command

remove-publicfolderdatabase -identity "exchange2007\sencond storage group\public folder database"
Get-PublicFolderDatabase -Server EX2007 | Remove-PublicFolderDatabase

it was giving error

I tried the command

Get-OfflineAddressBook | fl *database* the public folder from Exchange 2007 is populated here

But when i checked the properties of OAB in exchange 2010 physically it was pointing the exchange 2010 server. Is there any other way to remove the public folder database. Can i use ADSIEDIT and waht are the precautions to be taken.

Could you please help me out in solving the issue.
