Good afternoon all –

We are attempting to migrate Public Folders from an Exchange 2007 sever running on 2008 small business server to Office 365 Online (Exchange 2013) using PowerShell. We have followed the “Migrate Legacy Public Folders to Exchange Online” from the following link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj983799(v=exchg.150).aspx When we run the PowerShell script from part 5 of Step 5, (please see below script) we get an error on “RemoteMailboxServerLegacyDN” (please see below error). In Part 3b of Step 5, the document asks for the following -

$source_remoteMailboxLegacyDN = "/o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=Administrator"

Which we got from running the:  Get-Mailbox <PublicFolder_Administrator_Account> | Select-Object LegacyExchangeDN from part 2a of Step 5.

Has anyone tried this before? If so have you seen and resolved this error?
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Dave…

End of Script –

Hi Rancy,

Thank you for your post here. We have come up with an alternative solutions to this problem. We are simply going to export all public folders as PST and then import them.

We have tested this solution and it works for our needs.

Again, thank you,

Dave...

This is a mistake in the MS documentation.

Replace " -RemoteMailboxServerLegacyDN: $source_remotePublicFolderServerLegacyDN " with "-RemoteMailboxServerLegacyDN: $source_remotePublicFolderServerLegacyFQDN"
