I have am trying to migrate the Public Folders from a SBS2003 server to a SBS2011 Server.  The 2 servers do not see each other, each is a domain controller.  I have mapped drives between each server but when I try to execute the move it fails using EMS commands and I the SBS2011 server does not appear if I try to Move All Replicas using Exchange System Manager on the SBS2003 server.

[PS] C:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\v14\scripts>.\AddReplicaToPFRecursive.PS1 -Server "SBSATL" -TopPublicFol
der "\Folder" -ServerToAdd "RWSERVER"
Exchange server "SBSATL" wasn't found. Please make sure you typed the name correctly.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : D65E4F9E

What do I need to do to make the servers know about each other.

thanks in advance.

Are you doing a migration, or have you built a fresh SBS Server domain?

Basically - did you create an answer file and choose that option when doing the installation?

If not, then they will not and cannot be made to see each other.
If you haven't gone too far, I would trash the SBS 2011 server and do a proper migration.

Thanks Simon,

I'm sure you are right, you have been a big help in the past.  This was a Dell Server already onsite and connected.  It configured itself upon start up.  I don't recall any questions and I could not find a Migration wizard.

Only 12 users and I migrated the SQL database.  I exported the Public Folders to a PST file and then configured permissions on the SBS2011 server using Public Folder Mgt console, connected the PST folder, only 200MB to the Outlook client and copied the folders in.  This was not a very daunting task.  I have clients whose Vertical market apps integrate with Public Folders, I would have been in trouble there.  Fortunately this was only shared contacts.

In that case it isn't a migration - which is why you cannot see anything.
Personally I would trash that server and reinstall it. Dell's OEM builds are never very good anyway.
Follow the guide I have outlined above - it isn't very difficult.
The only thing I would change is that once the server is up, before you run any wizards, install Exchange 2010 SP3. Then run the wizards to configure the server as directed.
