Public Folder Replication

Hello,

We trying to delete a public folder database.  I have run the moveallreplicas.ps1 and left it for 4 days to complete.  I have checked all the prerequisites for removing a public folder database and have carried out all the steps.

I have now disabled replication to the other public folder databases, but when I go to delete the contents of the public folder database it still replicates the changes to the other PF databases and deletes those as well.

The server that the public folder database resides on, is the 1st exchange server in our environment and now needs to be decommissioned.

Am I missing something?

Please advise.

Thank you.

you need to go through the public folders and make sure no replicas are setup and this needs to be done on both servers. if you had a two way replication setup then you need to go to each server and verify the other server name isn't in the public folder's replica settings.

Zindel1,

I can see there are servers configured on the PFs for replication. I tried removing them using the EMC and it gives me an error "You must specify a value with the replicas parameter."

If you are simply trying to delete the messages from the other public folder then i would just make sure the one you are wanting to keep is up to date which it sounds like it is...then dismount the public folder database and remove it using ADSI edit. However make sure your offline address books are all moved and you don't have any issues while it is dismounted. This will force the database to be deleted. the only other suggestions i can think of is to try to run MoveAllReplicas.ps1 again and make sure they don't have any replicas anymore.

Thank you Zindel1. We are still working on this. I think we might have to go with the ADSI edit procedure.
