Exchange 2007 migration to new box/w server 2008 and Exchange 2007 Public Folders

I installed Exchange 2007 on new 2008 box. I want to migrate exchange from old server to new server. Old server has Public Folders in Second Storage Group. I expected the public folders to be automatically created when installing Exchange on new server and for the data to automatically sync with new public folder database. I thought I read that this is what would happen with Public Folders only. Thant mailboxes would have to move manually. This did not happen. What if anything went wrong? Do I need to create the Second Storage Group with a new public folder database? Would this get the sync to happen? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Create new storage group and mailbox db on second server move the mailboxes. For PF, create new PF storage and PF db, add the replica from first server and replicate the data to new server.

This will not delete anything, This will only replicate the PF database, correct? Also, after the PF gets replicated, if I leave things as is for a few days or so, will the updates to PF keep getting replicated to the new server? Thanks

Ya adding replica won't delete anything. You can also leave first server online. If this is first Exchange 2007 server in the environment and if you plan to decom it later then follow this article:
