After adding second Exchange 2007 server

Cannot access Public Folders after replicating to new server and moving mailboxes.  Also, when you launch Outlook the "waiting to update folders" takes about 2-3 minutes.  Tried removing cached logon and reapplied.  Thinking the Public Folders did not replicate properly.  How do I check and resolve?

Can I delete folders and create new Public Folders?  Is there communications to the old server still even if the Exchange services are shutdown?

Did you change the default public folder server for the mailboxes?
(database setting)
You need to leave both the source public folder and destination public folder servers up together for a while to permit sync.

Depending on your set schedule, this may take more that one or two nights. Check the event logs and re-home the folders so that no copy exists on the source server anymore.
( I would have both running for a week or two before removing source copy)

Created Public Folder database for the new server, but named it different that the old server.
Ran the moveallreplicas.ps1 script.

How do you know what server it is running on and when everything has copied over?

Might add we are having hard drive problems with the old server and it is running very slowly.  Lost one of the RAID5 drives.

Replication events are written to the event log - check around the time your replication schedule begins

The OAB is on the new server but the PF are still on the old server with some that are not accessible.  Noticed the Windows 2000 server is still showing which died some years ago.  In ADSIEDIT found traces of the W2K server in the First Administrative Group attributes.  Some posts say to clear the old server attributes?  Can I just delete the PF database and start anew on the new server without replication?
