Public calendar lost all entries since changing to local profiles.

Hi,

We have recently migrated one of our customers from their old server (That was set up by someone we don't know) to a new DC and Terminal Server. For some reason they were set up with roaming profiles which was causing a number of issues so we decided to change them to local profiles. This has fixed all the issues but also created a new one.

They have a public calendar that they use for holidays, birthdays, things like that. The calendar itself is still there and is working correctly. The issue is everything in the calendar has gone. So all previous and future entries aren't there anymore.

My question is where are the entries in public calendars held and is it possible to get them back?

Thanks

From your email, I understand it's an Exchange server.

it could be a public mailbox or a shared calendar from someone.

Ensure it's not being seen by one person where they have the calendar in PST

Sorry, They're using Outlook 2007. They have exchange 2010 running on a win 2008 server and they remote onto a terminal server.

To add the calendar they go into Folder List - Public Folders - All Public Folders. It just shows up as the company's name calendar. It doesn't show that it is linked to anyone and there is no mailbox in exchange relating to that name or alias?

I'm very new to server migration so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

This would stay in the Public Folder Database...

They are not adding the calendar, rather viewing it.

Did you migrate the public folder database?  When did you last see the calendar items?

Sorry for the late response.

I decided to scrap these public folders as it seems a terrible way of setting up a calendar for what they are using it for. I have created a shared mailbox in Exchange and given everyone access to it so they can use that as a shared calendar.

I'm assuming that this calendar was set up in the person who set up the old servers profile somewhere.

Thanks for all your help
