I am in the middle of a SBS 2003 to 2011 migration. I have been following the white paper from Microsoft entitled "Migrate to Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard from Windows Small Business Server 2003" (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14570
). I am on page 37-38 "Move Exchange Server public folders". I have followed the directions to the "T" and am not sure if it is working and wanted to find out if I am actually making progress? Following is some detail of what is going on:
From 2003 Exchange System Manager, I right-clicked on "Public Folder Store<server name> and clicked on "Move All Replicas". The only way I am aware of that you can monitor the progress of the transaction is to view the contents of the "Public Folder Instances" and when it is empty the transaction is complete. I started out with 18 folders (total size I think of about 25GB) in my "Public Folder Instances" (from Exchange System manager: <server name>-->Administrative Groups-->first administrative group-->Servers--><server name>-->First Storage Group-->Public Folder Store<server name>-->Public Folder Instances) and after refreshing I am now down to 5 folders (folder names: <server name> Archive, OAB Version 2, OAB Version 3a, OAB Version 4 and EX:/o=<server name>/ou=first administrative group). It has been stuck(or working) on these 5 remaining folders now for at least 17 or 18 hours now. If I browse to the new server the size of the destination folder (E:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server) has been set at only 400MB for at least 20 hours. I am assuming everything goes to a temp folder first???
Can someone please tell me if everything seems to be working correctly or am I simply stuck??
Thank you very much for your time and help!
