Recovering Public Folder Items from demoted Exchange 2007 server
Posted on 2012-03-15
I recently demoted our server, taking off Active Directory, that also ran Exchange 2007. It turned out that the replication settings for the Public Folders didn't propagate to subfolders. So, I have a bunch of subfolders on my Exchange 2007 with items in them, and I'm having a hard time getting them over to my Exchange 2010 server.
I've tried forcing the replication and doing "Update Content" manually under the Public Folder Management Console (on both servers), and that hasn't worked.
I've tried creating a mailbox on the 2007 server, but I'm not able to actually sign into it through OWA or even setting it up in a new Outlook account.
I've tried PFDAVadmin, but it doesn't show any items in the folders.
What can I do?
