Decommisioning Exchange 2003, nearly done but not sure if PF instances are fully present on 2010 organization

Hi Experts,

I've nearly completed decomissioning our Exchange 2003 organization, but are not quite sure if de System PF instances are fully present on the 2010 organization.

At all the Default Public Folders it shows the 2010 exchange server under Replicas (in the Public Follde Management console), but when I look at the System Public Folder list, I don't see the Exchange 2010 server shown at several instances, like the "EFORMS REGISTRY", "OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK" and "SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY"

When running the cmdlets I get the following results:

Note that EXCH-01 is our 2010 Exchange server

>>

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-publicfolder -Identity "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY" -Recurse | fl name,Replicas


Name     : SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY
Replicas : {}

Name     : EX:/o=My Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : EX:/O=My Organization/OU=EXTERNAL (FYDIBOHF25SPDLT)
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : EX:/o=My Organization/ou=First Administrative Group
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}



[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-publicfolder -Identity "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK" -Recurse | fl name,Replicas


Name     : OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK
Replicas : {}

Name     : /o=My Organization/cn=addrlists/cn=oabs/cn=Default Offline Address List
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : OAB Version 2
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : OAB Version 3a
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : OAB Version 4
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : EX:/o=My Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

Name     : EX:/o=My Organization/ou=First Administrative Group
Replicas : {Public Folder EXCH-01}

What's confusing me is that the 2nd line gives "Replicas : {}". Does this mean that they're not replicated or is this just to announce whats standing beneath..?

Thanks in advance,

Erik

Thanks,

Most of the articles I'm familiar with, except the last one!

The hierarchie (step 8 in your last linked article) I had already done some time ago, therfore I'm confused if al the steps are done correctly.

We already have run the environment with disabled 2k3 servers to see what happend before starting decommisioning. The only errors I see regarding PF are four items which generate an event:

Event ID:      3092
Task Category: Replication Errors

Error 1129 occurred while processing a replication event.

 Folder: (19-223DB9) IPM_SUBTREE\xxxx\yyyy\zzzz

But that isn't what scares me. I mainly want to know if the system folder instances are replicated or situated on the exchange 2010 organisation correctly / fully.

See att. files for clarification

Will I get the same results when using ExFolders on the 2010 server..? I'm just a simple sysadmin and not to familiar with cmd let..

See info on Exchange Server 2010 SP1–The replacer of PFDAVAdmin : ExFolders
I also need to add that de PF instances on the 2003 server are already empty. Did a Move all replicase on the PF store of de 2003 server some time ago..

Thanks guys,

Finally I stumbled upon Sembee's really clearifying document "Migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010". That has some really good pointers.
